Linoleum Block Printing Book

When I was looking through my art book collection yesterday, I could not believe that I have this little book about linoleum block printing!! I don't remember it - it must be magic! And because I love block printing, it's a fabulous find! The 47 pages were printed with the actual linoleum blocks in 1939. In the preface, the artist says that it is possible to run a well-carved linoleum cut for at least 50,000 impressions. Can you imagine that? It's all very charming!
