Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This is a guide to printmaking by hand, without a press. It ranges from potato prints to multi-colour linocuts; from collage to screen prints; from prints made with pipe cleaners and burger boxes to three-dimensional indented sculpture. The advantage of the techniques covered are that they do not require expensive equipment or much space and are suitable for all age groups. Easy to follow for the beginner this book also offers insights for the experienced printmaker. All the methods require little specialised equipment and can be carried out at home on the kitchen table.

Bibliography: pages 142-143. - Includes index.

Library Journal Review

Desmet and Anderson have created a book that crosses the boundary separating folk crafts from the fine arts. Tracing printmaking back to the first dinosaur footprints left in clay, they offer an introduction that encompasses everything from potato printing to multicolor linocuts, from collage to three-dimensional indented sculpture yet uses very little specialized equipment. Initial chapters on inks, tools, paper making, and paper marbling are followed by playful, sometimes wacky chapters on body prints and printing from buttons, discarded toys, stones, shoes, and sliced fruits. For example, a lovely Asian-style print is made by inking the wheels of a toy steam shovel. This highly accomplished work includes a glossary of terms, techniques, and materials and a list of suppliers (though one can find much on one's own in the toy chest and refrigerator). Recommended for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
