" The cover photography is beautiful, and both cover and inner page paper stock are high quality, making this the kind of book that would be a perfect gift for someone interested in the subject. What I love about this book is how practical and useful it is. It's really obvious how much knowledge and practical experience Nick has, as well as being an incredible artist. This is definitely not like one of those celebrity chef cook books - it's about linocut first and foremost and is as excellent and as humble as the man himself. H Locke - Artist and Illustrator "
