David Blackwood was born in 1941 in Wesleyville, Newfoundland, into a family with a long seafaring tradition. Today, he is recognized internationally as a master printmaker, and his work, rooted in the oral narrative tradition and strong social values of his birthplace, appears in collections all over the world. David Blackwood brings together 141 of the artistís most evocative etchings in a splendidly produced celebration of his work.

The bookís text, by novelist, screenwriter and fellow Newfoundlander William Gough, depicts with poetic insight the unforgettable physical culture and landscape of David Blackwoodís art. A detailed chronology presents the highlights of the artistís life and work. And novelist Annie Proulx, a fervent admirer and collector of David Blackwoodís art, offers a moving appreciation of it here. Stunningly designed, featuring lush, four-colour images throughout, David Blackwood: Master Printmaker is a fitting tribute to an artist of true international renown.
