nicely presented - but not much info on homemade printing methods..
on 11 January 2010
this is a really nicely presented book - lovely pictures, very easy to understand - great for someone who knows absolutely nothing about printing methods... sadly it doesn't give you much info on how to make printing materials yourself... for example - in the "rubber stamp printing" section the first thing you're told to do is go out and buy a rubber stamp and some paper. the screen printing section is the most detailed, but again you're told to go and buy screen-filler liquid and a pre-made screen. if you know absolutely nothing about printing methods and have no idea how to use a rubber stamp effectively - buy the book. it's very pretty. however if you already know how to make your own stamps and stencils and would like to know about more complicated printing methods i'd look elsewhere.
