Average review
I highly recommend this thoughtfully written book, which is accompanied by gorgeous photography. It taught me new techniques I'm eager to try and, most importantly, reminded me to take the time to ponder the process of eco-printing and why I enjoy doing it so much. Ecoprinting is not just about wondrous and surprising results, but about celebrating a sense of place and one's own presence within in. Thank you!
