Imre Reiner

My friend Carsten first dragged my attention to the work of Imre Reiner, a typographer and wood-engraver born in Hungary in 1900, and later he sent me a wonderful book illustrated by him.

I am utterly impressed by the apparently easy and relaxed way he worked on the wood to create images that look like ink drawings. Amazing. I have set up a challenge to try something like that on that beautiful piece of lemon wood that has been queuing to be used for quite some time.
