Synopsis: A comprehensive reference work for print and art collectors, dealers in prints and illustrated books and people interested in graphic art with no previous knowledge on the subject. It was the result of Bamber Gascoigne's own early experiences in trying to discover which print was what. Looking for precise guidance on problems of identification, he found that there was no book specifically designed to answer that need - so he wrote it. Organized in a series of self-contained sections, the book takes you through both the manual and the mechanical methods of printmaking, with 90 techniques discussed in all, both monochrome and colour. Many illustrations of enlarged details showing the different appearance of variuos techniques under strong magnification are included and examples are given of the identifying features which will help to reveal the type of print, such as varieties of line and tone and details of how the ink lies. A glossary-index provides brief definitions of a wide range of terms and phrases.

From Library Journal: Exquisitely presented and profusely illustrated, this book carries the reader through some technical vocabulary and a "Sherlock Holmes" approach to an ability to identify techniques used in graphic images from the invention of the printing press to high technology. The detective approach provides a dimension not normally found in works of art history or graphic arts production. Monochrome and color prints are covered, and variations in relief, intaglio, and planographic prints are thoroughly discussed. There is also a glossary and bibliography. This is a great reference considering the recent interest in art, old photographs, prints, and in collecting and investing in fine art. William A. McIntyre, New Hampshire Vocational-Technical Coll. Lib., Nashua
