Basic Printmaking Techniques.

Every major area of printmaking except intaglio, is addressed in this survey of processes, and techniques. The author, an artists, master printer and gallery owner, includes hundreds of step-by-step photos of contemporary artists as they work through the various phases of developing a printing matrix, applying ink, and pulling the print. Monotypes, silkscreen and relief processes are emphasized, along with chapters on Planning a Studio, and Paper & Papermaking. The text is succinct, with informative captions explaining the many black-and-white photographs and diagrams. A "Color Gallery" in the center of the book presents full-color examples of prints by important artists in the processes covered. Chapters on such simple relief processes as cardboard prints, linocuts, woodblocks and collagraphs contribute to the worth of this book for art teachers from middle school through college level.
