The Complete Printmaker.

This revision of a 1972 edition is a comprehensive guide to contemporary printmaking procedures and products. Numerous color and black-and-white photographs present the reader with examples of prints and printing techniques in each of the four major printmaking processes. In addition, there are extensive chapters on monotypes, photographic techniques, computer-based prints, health hazards and other relevant topics. While the major portion of this book discusses the work of contemporary printmakers, a brief chapter addresses K-12 school printmaking projects. A helpful chart of suppliers, a glossary and a helpful bibliography are also included. An excellent resource for middle school through university bookshelves.

Graphically Speaking

Our society tends to take graphic design for granted with little realization of the power of visual communication to sell products and shape lifestyles. Often our schools do little to alter this perception; one of the reasons being a lack of worth-while books in this area. Four new publications have recently crossed the editor's desk and may serve to support instruction in this important sector of the art curriculum.
