The Etcher's Studio
A young boy helps his grandfather, an etcher, prepare for a year-end studio print sale. The boy’s most important task is to color each etching by hand. His mind begins to wander into the world of art as he imagines himself within the very pictures he is coloring, exploring distant lands and flying over his town in a hot-air balloon. Using a young boy and his grandfather as guides, Arthur Geisert explains the process involved in the intricate art of etching, while his colorful illustrations demonstrate the elegance and beauty of this unique art form.
