Definitive resource book for printmakers, artists, and students.
by Ann d’Arcy Hughes and Hebe Vernon-Morris
Printmaking is both an inspirational insight into the art and craft of printmaking and also a comprehensive guide to printmaking techniques. Interviews with leading artists give readers an understanding of different working methods, and explorations of printhouses and workshops reveal developments within the various media in this field. Contemporary imagery from leading international artists makes this an exciting, visual encyclopedia.
Chapters are arranged according to printmaking technique. Each chapter begins with a full-page print from the featured artist, followed by an interview explaining the medium used. This is followed with a breakdown of the methods used, illustrated with step-by-step photos. Areas of the selected prints are isolated to show the diverse technical processes used by each artist. A comprehensive resources section lists suppliers, workshops, and studios, and provides a synopsis of the various presses, inks, and papers available.
Ann d’Arcy Hughes has enjoyed a long and illustrious career in printmaking. She is a first-prize winner for the Fine Press Book Association Illustration award. Hebe Vernon-Morris studied as a ceramicist and metalworker before turning to printmaking, specializing in lithography and woodcut. They both live in Sussex, UK.
