The book also includes a survey of issues and contemporary concerns in the printmakers world.

I have this book at home, access online, and a copy in my printmakers guild print shop library! Lovely book, with good information & specifics, with examples.
I wish I had a newer similar book that covered newer non-toxic processes as well.
