Noteworthy for its exceptionally clear, concise explanations of a complex subject, this guide to the full range of printmaking techniques describes how art prints are made and offers a brief history of the various processes, which fall into four categories: relief, intaglio, planographic, and stencil. The text also looks at papermaking, for its effect on the character of an impression, and explains how manual methods have evolved into more modern photomechanical techniques. Illustrated with examples from the superb collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and including a glossary of printmaking technology and abbreviations commonly found in inscriptions, this up-to-date guide will be of special interest to students and collectors.
