This handbook explains how prints are made and gives a brief history of the development of the different processes. Relief, intaglio, planographic and stencil techniques are all described and papermaking is briefly covered for its effect on the character of an impression. The text also shows how these manual processes have been developed into the photo-mechanical techniques used by commercial printers and artists. A glossary of the terminology of printing and the abbreviations most commonly found in inscriptions on them is included.

SUSAN LAMBERT is chief curator of the Department of Prints, Drawings and Paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She was responsible for the redisplay of the 20th-century galleries at the museum.From Library Journal:
Printmaking spans everything from hand prints on ancient cave walls to Rembrandt's copper etchings of the Virgin and Child and Warhol's soup cans to the potato prints made by today's second grader at the kitchen table. Byrne, a print publisher and curator, here focuses on strictly contemporary uses of etching, aquatint, lithography, and screen printing. He covers both basic techniques and the joint experimentation of artist and master printer, surveying the American print scene with examples from ten of the top North American print houses. Recommended for collections serving advanced students and professionals. Chief curator of the Department of Prints, Drawings and Paintings at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Lambert here offers a very fine, short volume that concentrates on traditional printmaking methods, including relief, intaglio, planographic, and stencil. She uses examples from William Hogarth to Victor Vasarely, drawing on the collections of the V & A. Lambert addresses students and collectors, including a glossary of technical terms, abbreviations found in print inscriptions, and a select bibliography. This is recommended for popular collections but cannot replace John Ross and Clare Romano's essential and far more comprehensive Complete Printmaker.
