Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A useful little book for getting some inspiration and some step by step information (not in great detail - but enough if you already know the technique being used to make a start). As the title says, a lot of it is about installations so not really the sort of thing you make in the spare bedroom and display around the house. But I did like a lot of the work shown and it has inspired me to try adding encaustic wax to my mixed media peices.

I found the authors style a bit odd. In each section there is a bit describing the work of a number of artists including the author and its all written in the third person so she says "Alexia Talia was lucky enough to work with..." I don't think the lucky enough bit would have been there if she was talking about another artist but in all the pieces about her own work there is never a single "I".

Overall a good purchase.

This book is different in that it really is a 'must have' book for the artist and printer who is looking for something more exciting than traditional techniques. It features various artist's work, as well as the author's using a wide range of printing strategies. Not for the beginner, however, as it uses complex methods not easily done without specialist materials or processes. I found it inspiring and will use this as an ideas book to inspire my own practice. What is really the best thing about it for me is the experimentation of the artists and the brief list of 'how to's ' incorporated with the artist's profile.

This is a fabulous little book that is brilliant to have a flick through if you are stuck for ideas. Printmaking is a wonderful traditional way of working but its continuously being used in a more contemporary way. This book is an excellent display of some artists who do this and do it well, i reccommend it highly.
