Jenny Portlock’s new Wood Engraving Website

Jenny Portlock's "Looking Forward," Original Wood Engraving, from "Chasing Dreams"

Jenny Portlock, a wood engraver from Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, has taken inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s books for years. Now you can see some of her art on her new website, www.woodengravings.eu. “I print my wood Engravings and linocuts onto hand-made papers using an antique cast-iron press and have designed my own imprint which is hand-embossed into each print,” writes Portlock of her process. “Each original engraving and linocut is part of a small limited edition and prices range from £50-£150.”

    This comment is only slightly related to the post. In Brian Selznik’s “Wonderstruck” there are two interwoven stories told; one is through text and the other through illustration. The illustrated story (about a girl called Rose Kincaid) includes two pages that show a copy of Alice in Wonderland among the books in her room.
