Prints and Printmaking
New Burlington Books, 1988 - Graphic art - 192 pages
"Printmaking encompasses a wider variety of processes, techniques and materials than any other artistic medium. This unique flexibility gives both amateurs and professionals alike the ability to visualize their ideas in many different ways, while also providing the maximum freedom to experiment and explore new methods of working. Far from being a medium solely for the reproduction of images originated in other fields, printmaking is today one of the major forms of artistic expression. Fully illustrated with over 600 diagrams, step-by-step photographs and actual prints, this comprehensive handbook covers the history, equipment, techniques and materials of all the basic painting processes: relief, intaglio, screen and planographic."--BOOK JACKET.
