Format: Hardcover
An excellent look at contemporary print making in all of its forms. This book lists and challenges pre-conceptions about print making, including modern technologies and ideas of artists multiples. A very refreshing look at print making in modern times.

Two Thumbs Up 19 Jan. 2009
By Printeresting - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is an invaluable resource... the best contemporary print book (that doesn't focus on the technical side of things).

Saunders and Miles establish a theme for each chapter and then provide artist examples. While not as broad in scope as Linda Weintraub's In the Making, there is a similarity in that categorization isn't guided by technique but by idea. Chapter themes include Print in 3-D (Lynne Allen, Rachel Whiteread), Print as Public Art (Julian Opie), Multiples (Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Damian Hirst), and Community-based Workshops (Virgil Marti, Willie Cole). By breaking up the work thematically, this book gives some framework for viewing current trends in the ever-expansive discipline of printmaking. It's been an invaluable tool in the classroom.
