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
