It contains loads of helpful advice and inspirational ideas for anyone interested in producing textured collagraph prints. I'm just getting started in printmaking but think that the guidance from this book should enable me to produce my first collagraph. The book is also challenging enough to interest someone with more experience.
This is another welcome product from A & C Black's current printmaking series.
As a practicing printmaker who works in two Oxfordshire print studios, I find this book very accessible on all levels (I work with both students and professional printmakers). The content is practical, easy to grasp, is packed full of useful and interesting information and is beautifully illustrated.
I like the fact that there are essays about known working artists and their individual approaches to their work. To my mind it gets one thinking about many levels of enquiry, which is very necessary for students, as well as more experienced artists.
A few technique processes are shown, but to anybody not very familiar already with printmaking techniques, terminology and materials, these aren't sufficient for a beginner to follow. For anybody with access to a print studio, this is a more practical purchase.
For anybody interested in the idea of collagraph in any context, though, this is an inspiring book, full of examples of artists' work, with commentaries exploring materials, techniques, and inspiration.
My only complaint is that I feel it does not show me enough of the techniques,I feel that I will have to buy another book for that but a girl can never have enough books anyway.
I am glad I have it in my collection !
A must for any printmaker or artist who is interested in mixed media printmaking.
