Truly inspiring book for this interesting art technique,
This review is from: Digital Art Studio: Techniques for Combining Inkjet Printing with Traditional Art Materials (Paperback)
I have a few books on the subject of combining inkjet printing with traditional art materials (there aren't many) most of which are very disappointing. This is a diamond in a sea of sand and stands head and shoulder above the nearest rival.
The book is printed on good paper with decent sized examples of the three authors work. It's very logically laid out starting with the basics and progressing in complexity, without being at all condescending. It covers substrates (printing surfaces) you can buy and then moves on to preparing your own surfaces for your art work. The progression from chapter to chapter is logical and adds another level of (easy to understand) complexity to this interesting and varied art technique. As you can `look inside' the book on Amazon, I won't go into the content of each chapter, suffice to say they are all very interesting. Each chapter has great commentary and instructions with step by step illustrations and a list of materials used. They also have a `Tips' section, a `Creative Explorations' section (ideas of variations and what you can explore next) as well as a `Trouble Shooting' where appropriate.
The level of detail described with each technique is fantastic and never leaves you confused. I have been truly inspired by this book and cannot recommend it enough. A clear five star rating!
