  • visuals for worship — free

    Images of beautiful linoleum block prints by Elizabeth Steele Halstead available free for use in worship.

    Each image of the 27 images is an original linoleum block print resulting from a printmaking process in which an image is drawn on a block of wood covered with a thin layer of linoleum and then hand-carved to expose areas that will be white. Ink is rolled onto the block, covering the surface not cut away. Paper made from the mulberry tree is laid on top and hand rubbed with a Japanese barren or wooden spoon. In transferring the ink to the paper the resulting image is a reflection of the design placed on the block. All first appeared in the book Visuals for Worship (Faith Alive Christian Resources, 2006) which is no longer in print.
