Library Journal Review

With copious examples of finished pieces by numerous artists, and procedural discussions of several dozen processes, this book is both a technical guide and a source of inspiration. Sections address the main printmaking methods in use today: relief, intaglio, lithography, screen printing, mixed media, and what Covey (Photoshop for Artists) calls "post-digital" printmaking. The opening chapter briefly and entertainingly discusses the history of printmaking, while each section provides background on a given method and chapters on specific techniques. Woodcuts and linoleum prints, for example, are addressed in the relief section. Instruction on intaglio delves into acid techniques, including the spit bite aquatint. The "post-digital" chapter explains innovative techniques involving CNC machines. VERDICT Though this guide is best for advanced artists with prior printmaking experience, readers of all skill levels will enjoy the diversity of printmaking processes -represented here. © Copyright 2016.
