I recently discovered the Zucchi Collection, which is a collection of 56,000 wood and pewter, antique printing blocks formerly used for the production of hand-printed fabrics. The website offers a brief history, demonstration on building a hand-block and printing on fabric, and a glimpse into their collection. Below are highlights from the collection with the original block and final fabric produced using the block.
