I got this beautiful book for my birthday last year. It explains all kinds of methods of printing techniques by hand. Like stamping, linoleum printing, freezer paper techniques and screenprinting in different ways. It also contains patterns that you can use for printing and they are very inspiring as well.
I thought to give it a go with screenprinting and this is my first trial (guess what inspired me...).
The method I used is quite easy (you don't need hard to find or expensive materials) and I am very pleased with the result. You can use the screens to print on paper, fabrics, wood and so on. I am working on some more screens and I am really eager to make the prints (I'll keep you posted of course!)
