Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An instrumental DIY resource, this guide is a fascinating comic-zine turned graphic novel that details the art and science of screen printing T-shirts. The book, which collects Isaacsons previously self-published zines, is illustrated throughout with vivid illustrations and humorous commentary, and also includes additional new material made available for this special book edition. Here at last are the nuts and bolts to turning your home into a T-shirt factory: how to build a screen, burn an image, test a print, pull ink, wash out screens, and create unique prints. This is essential reading material for people who don't know how to screen print or those who are a bit rusty, and it has been expanded to include information about vending T-shirts on the street and working in a print shop.

Synopsis:

Self-published edition has sold 2,000 copies.

Author John Isaacson gives frequent workshops around the country.

Microcosm Publishing has sent out 5,000

postcards for the book to bookstores and individuals.
