Hot off the Press!!!


Finally, our long-awaited book,  Blockopedia – A Beginner’s Guide, has arrived!

This is a project that we have been working on over the course of a few years (tucked in between a multitude of other projects) so it is good to at long last see it in print.

Blockopedia is a fully revised and expanded version of the museum’s inaugural exhibition guide, Print Progress, now discontinued. This concise new version is designed to not only introduce enthusiasts to the art of block printing, but also provide practitioners and professionals alike with  tidbits of new information. Among other things, we revisit block printing centres while adding new regions that we hope to explore in the future. Also included is an expanded section on natural dyes along with technical processes. Of course, as in past, the book is full of lush photographs and beautiful fabric swatches that highlight the text.

You will find our new publication in the museum shop and Anokhi shops across India. We hope that you enjoy reading this compendium as much as we did writing it and that it will become a well-thumbed edition to your budding textile library.

With regards ~

AMHP staff
