This is a fantastic general introduction to printmaking using a wide range of materials. This practical guide includes instructions on all of the main printmaking techniques, as well as examples of inspirational works by the author and other contemporary printmakers.  It covers a wide range of techniques such as inexpensive intaglio and relief processes, pronto-plate lithography, using digital images as layers in unique prints, simple screenprinting, low cost collographs, plexi-plate drypoint, monoprinting from plastic sheets, and using inexpensive stencil materials. Clear descriptions of viscosity printing and registration techniques are also included. Mixed-media printmaking allows vast freedom for experimentation and the reader is encouraged to adapt and refine the basic techniques to suit their own projects. An inspiring book for all printmakers.

Another title in the Practical book series, all techniques included are low-cost, easy to achieve and non-toxic, and do not require expensive materials or extensive studio space and equipment.
