BONUS MECHANICS RATING:Star Rating This book goes over screen printing from scratch and block printing - two topics I knew absolutely nothing about but have always had an interest.

SUMMARY- When I first saw this book, I was mildly interested because I thought it was a history of printed rag toys. This is not a history - it's a "How To" book, and despite the serious dating(as of this writing, 45 years old) is still quite useful and a wonderful read.
