Publisher Comments:

Praise for Nature Printing

" Stuff you usually compost or toss out with nary a second thought could actually be transformed into things of beauty. Nature Printing is simple and you don't have to have much in the way of esoteric or expensive materials to make frame-worthy prints, handmade stationery, or gift wrap." --Newsday

"I mastered one project after a five minute flip through the book. The photos and drawings are wonderfully easy to follow. I proceeded to decorate every envelope in the house. I couldn't stop! My daughter and I stamped through the entire house." --Darragh Doiron in the Port Arthur (TX) News

"Just looking at this book makes you want to collect supplies and get to work. This is one of the most beautiful books I have seen." --The Chagrin Falls (OH) Valley Times

"Author Laura Donnelly Bethmann has done a wonderful job of revealing the methods behind a centuries-old craft that still appeals to the young and old, regardless of artistic ability." --Akron (OH) Beacon Journal

"Bethmann has discovered the real connection between the creative self-expression evident in both gardening and painting, and has recognized how nature printing links them both." --Manchester (CT) Journal Inquirer
