The Wordless Art of George A. Walker

2022 Feature Documentary 70 minutes
Profiling renowned Canadian woodcut artist, engraver and graphic novelist George A. Walker.

Wood engraver, book artist, master printer, and time traveler—George A. Walker has created a distinct world of books, imagery, and ideas. His latest inspiration is the silent screen star Mary Pickford, whose life he explores in his final wordless biography. Woodwriter follows a blank block of maple on its journey to becoming a sculptural hand-made book, and includes visits with Canadian icons such as Leonard Cohen and Pierre Trudeau along the way. A delightful film about art and its makers, peppered with Canadian culture, shows how past and present never stop talking to each other — even if it’s without words.
