Gustave Baumann (1881-1971) is just one of many artists they print. A German immigrant to this country when he was ten years old, Baumann became a pioneer in modern woodblock printing. He lived and worked in Indiana, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and ended up living in Santa Fe for the last years of his life.
