The Printmakers Bible

Everything you ever wanted to know about Printmaking and then some. If you are doing any kind of printmaking, you need this book in your library and the best deal I could find was at
Fast shipping, great pricing and a friendly staff if you need to talk to someone. I not only recommend this book but Alibris as well (no I don't work for them), I am a student at Folsom Lake College in Northern California.

Book Review

This book would be an excellent acquisition for those desiring hands-on information on relief and intaglio techniques of printing. It is written by two artists who are experienced in all of these processes, both old and new, and these are accompanied by many illustrations for assistance. The book's content is supplemented with interesting snippets of the history of the different techniques as well.
