After hunting for a good no-nonsense 'how to' guide to screenprinting I pre-ordered the Print Liberation book, having judged it entirely on the basis of its cover (fair for a book about graphics, no?).

I wasn't disappointed - it's a brilliant and inspirational book, perfect for the guy who's never even seen (let alone burned) a screen. It's heavy on the pictures, light and conversational on the text, covers history of screenprinting and how to turn your hobby into art or business. Although it covers the necessary practicalities regarding screenprinting in a refreshingly craft-free (yet still very professional) way, it's really its passionate, positive and generous tone that has made me an evangelist. The guys who wrote this believe passionately in the sharing and spreading of skills, to the extent that they include transparencies of their graphic work in the back of the book for you to use!

If i had to make a criticism it would be that it's a bit too light on the copy - but that doesn't really matter. This really is a 'primer' : basic no nonsense facts about how to screenprint + healthy dose of inspiration + lots of pretty pictures and graphics. Its goal is to get you printing, and in that it succeeds. Don't give up!

I asked for the book for my birthday despite the negative reviews as it had been recommended to me by a friend. I was pleasantly surprised. It covers everything a beginner would need to start screen printing, from how to set up your own studio at home, to the screen printing basics - they even through some cool templates in to start you off! It also has an interesting section on the history of screen printing. It doesn't really cover any fancy techniques, but offers lots of advice and inspiration. I can't wait to get started!

This is one of those books that thinks it is sooooo cool. Lots of glossy double page spreads of dirty print shops & used squeegees. If, like me, you actually want to get some in-depth tips for printing then go somewhere else. I have a basic idea about screen printing and have done single colour T shirts. I want to get into 4 colour separations etc but there's none of that here. It is for absolute beginners but maybe more appropriate for Nathan Barleyesque posers who need something to put on a corian surface in their quayside loft apartment. Pants. I'm sending mine back.

Very basic explanation of the screen printing process which you are better off picking up from the web. Very little in the way of inspiring artwork despite the title (I only felt liberated from my money). Also there is some terrible guff in the back about sharing your knowledge,ideas,creativity etc which was too trite to tollerate. I sent it back!

This handbook explains modern techniques for handprinting which are easily understood and which do not require a long list of equipment. It stimulates inspiration by explaining the history of screenprinting and by examining popular artists who have used screen printing for their images. It is imaginative and practical and even includes ready printed acetates.
