"Printmaking" is a comprehensive and up to date introduction to fundamental printmaking techniques including relief, intaglio, collagraph, lithography, screen print and monoprint. It shows how some of the latest and most experimental prints have been made using these techniques. It also shows how to use the computer as an image-making tool and how to translate digital images into tangible works of art. Each chapter has clear, step-by-step illustrations with extensive case studies, which help the student understand the technical aspects of each printmaking technique. Each chapter profiles a leading contemporary printmaker, with an interview and examples of their work. The appendices include many useful troubleshooting charts, indicating the problems that are likely to arise with different techniques, and what can be done to solve them. There is also a useful glossary of technical terms.
