Drawing on the magnificent collection of fine prints at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, this vibrant full-color book celebrates the rich diversity of the print as a 20th-century art form. Edvard Munch, Eduardo Paolozzi, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, Ben Shahn, and Jasper Johns are just a few of the renowned artists whose prints can be found in these pages.
For every year of the 20th century there is a print or set of prints, ranging from an exquisite photogravure of Lincoln Cathedral (1900) to Shroud (2000), an image of artist Lee Wagstaff screen-printed in his own blood. Every page conveys the innovative possibilities of printmaking that excite the artistic imagination and make this affordable medium so popular with art lovers and collectors.

Margaret Timmers is curator in the Department of Prints, Drawings and Paintings at the V&A.From Library Journal:
This book includes 100 examples of 20th-century prints kept in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum of London. Arranged chronologically, each entry represents one year of the century and includes a full-page reproduction, along with a page of background information about the print and artist. The authors, members of the V&A's Department of Prints, Drawings, and Paintings, cover a wide range of techniques, including woodcut, lithography, etching, and photographic processes. The artists included are mostly British, but there is also some discussion of major printmakers from other areas of Europe and the United States. The documentation is especially good, with notes about provenance, print numbering, and physical descriptions. One problem, especially for American readers, is that "V&A" is not identified as the Victoria and Albert Museum except in the copyright notice. With this in mind, it is recommended primarily for specialized users of academic and art research libraries as a source of information on prints in the V&A collection.
