The classic resource for working artists and art students
 
In this updated and revised edition of the classic reference on health hazards faced by working artists and art students, Michael McCann—the leading authority in the field—and coauthor Angela Babin provide clear and comprehensive information on a broad range of arts—from painting and photography to sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, textiles, computer, and childrens art. Health Hazards Manual for Artists, Sixth Edition, is the only concise resource that covers all relevant topics related to labeling, chemicals, safety, and first aid.

For beginners and professionals alike, this practical work is a must-have resource for every art class, studio, and home.

This fully revised edition includes:

•  New chapters on the hazards of metals and minerals and on art student safety

•  Sections on ventilation, non-silver photo processing, and computer graphics

•  Information on various artistic fields, what materials to avoid, and how

    chemicals and other agents might affect the artist directly

Book News Annotation:

In this update of his enduring text (first published in 1975) McCann (industrial hygiene and chemistry, Columbia U., New York) provides an overview of the hazards for artists of all types working with a variety of materials, tools, and environments. Early chapters address how art materials including solvents and aerosol sprays, acids and alkalis, and metals affect the body. The chapters in part two address the hazards of specific media such as: painting, printmaking, ceramics, stone, woodworking, plastics sculpture, welding, enameling, photography, textiles, and commercial and graphic arts. One chapter is dedicated to children and art materials. The final part covers safety in the studio including the substitution of safer materials and processes and details on personal protective equipment (including material-dependant types of filters for respirators). The appendices list contact information for US occupational health clinics as well as places to find art safety equipment. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
