5.0 out of 5 stars Mixing Printmaking Techniques, what can be done and how to do it., 4 April 2012

This review is from: Practical Mixed-Media Printmaking (331/3) (Paperback)
This is the printmaking book I've been waiting for.

It describes many of the processes of printmaking, traditional (eg drypoint) and more recent (eg collagraph) with a good level of technical detail. For instance it gives excellent information on how to ink and wipe various levels in a collagraph, viscocity inking, preparing a copper plate. Many of these are covered (though not always as clearly) in the excellent Printmaking Handbook series. What this book does is bring all these techniques together, show how you can combine them, and tell you the practical way to do so. There are many excellent illustrations, by lots of printmakers, and, unusually, the book strives to tell you how each is achieved. It is a British publication, so there are none of the problems often experienced with US technical books having different terms and materials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Mixed-Media Printmaking (331/3) (Paperback)
The book is excellent, both as an introduction to collagraph printmaking and also full of ideas for more experienced printmakers.
My only disappointment was that it was advertised as in very good condition, but it wasn't.

This review is from: Practical Mixed-Media Printmaking (331/3) (Paperback)
Once you understand printmaking techniques, the door is open to experimentation and freedom. Apart from the practical instructions showing the techniques, this book includes professional hints and tips. For further inspiration, over 90 examples are given from contemporary artists who work in print plus 19 artist profiles. This is good for getting to grips with techniques and seeing the variety of work that can be produced. This review first appeared on the yarnsandfabrics website.
