2) Sites explaining how to make wood block prints.

Woodblock.com An excellent site.
Technique of the Color Wood-cut pages that also explain very clearly how these beautiful prints are made.

3) Various sites on artists that I love.
Paul Binnie a contemporary artist (in his forties) who lives in Wimbledon. His works are absolutely beautiful: a visit is definitely worthwhile. And the biography
