Ever wondered what the difference is between an engraving and an etching?
Or needed precise definitions of more recent printing innovations?
Illustrated with both colour and black-and-white images, this indispensable guide explains the full range of printmaking techniques.
Based on the collections held at the Victoria & Albert Museum, the guide outlines the development and history of printmaking, past and present. Using examples of work by artists ranging from Hogarth to Warhol, Durer to Gormley, it describes the various methods of producing prints - most of which fall into the four key categories of-
- relief
- intaglio
- planographic
- stencil.
Enlarged details help to illustrate the differing effects that can be achieved and papermaking is also covered, for its effect on the character of an impression.
With its glossary of technical terms and of abbreviations most commonly found in print inscriptions, plus a select bibliography, this invaluable introduction will provide an informed appreciation of printmaking to students and collectors alike.
