Book Description
David Blackwood: Master Printmaker is a stunning retrospective of the major works of one of Canada’s most talented artists. Born in Wesleyville, Newfoundland, Blackwood grew up in a family with a long seafaring tradition. His great-grandfather was a captain; his grandfather was in command of the S.S. Imogene; and his father was a skipper in the fisheries. A strong history of oral narratives and the values of an active outport fuse with Blackwood’s talent to produce works of art that speak in a unique voice.

David Blackwood: Master Printmaker brings together 135 of the artist’s most evocative etchings, reproduced in outstanding color on high quality paper. The book’s large format grants each work a 10 1/2" x 11" page for generous viewing, and each print is accompanied by concise commentary by novelist, poet and fellow Newfoundlander William Gough. The artist himself has also contributed explanatory text to accompany a series of working prints. A chronology covers the highlights of the artist’s life and work, and novelist Annie Proulx (Shipping News) offers a moving appreciation of the artist in the foreword.
