Format: Paperback
Jane Stobart has considerable experience of teaching both art students, and keen amateurs, and this shows in the lucid explanations of all the processes, examples of what works best, and the avoidance of pitfalls.

This book is particularly invaluable to anyone working without the full studio presses and equipment (although these are, of course covered) because alternative methods of taking a print are described in full. Alternatives to solvents and oil-based inks are available, and their use explained.

I have used the book for various of my own projects, which, thanks to the information and explanations given, have turned out very well. I am not a professionally trained artist, but thanks to Jane Stobart, I have achieved "professional" results in a number of the different printing methods described.

If you want a practical book with good clear explanations, then this is the one - and it's excellent value!

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. M. FENNELL-ROBERTS on 28 Dec. 2009
Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book which would explain the different printmaking processes used by artists and this is it and more! The text gives a thorough grounding in each of the processes, covering tools and materials, safe practices, special techniques and areas for experimentation. All this is supported by some wonderful examples of prints from both the author and a wide range of artists using different techniques. (These illustrations are a great starting point for further study.)
It's a good starter book which I keep dipping into it. It has helped me to understand and appreciate the prints at our local gallery and inspired me enough to want to try printmaking.
If the more specialist Printmaking Handbooks are as good as this I shall look forward to reading them.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to give me some background knowledge before starting a printing course at the Curwen study centre.It gives concise clear instructions on how to approach the different techniques such as monotype,relief,intaglio,collograph screenprinting lithography and carborundum prints.I would recommend this as a starting point to try out the techniques some of which can easily be done at home. Good luck and have fun experimenting!
