Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Produce bold patterns of light and shade in a linocut. Recreate the subtle effects of light on water in a lithograph. Whether you choose relief printing (printing from a raised surface), intaglio (printing from a sunken surface), planographic (printing from a flat surface), or the stencil processes (screenprinting), you'll find the method you wish to learn. Progressing from simple to more advanced techniques, this invaluable guide covers monoprints, linocuts, wood cuts, wood engraving, collage blocks, screenprinting, drypoint, mezzotint, etching, and lithography. Find out how to organize your studio space and learn about the best materials, tools and equipment to use in each printing process. Study line and tone, graphic impact, pattern and texture, color, composition, mood and atmosphere, style and content, and more. Bonus: a gallery of images by the world's best printmakers.

Synopsis:

A frame can be a work of art itself--and with these detailed color illustrations of finished frames, you can choose the right molding, mount, or finish to complement any object: paintings, mirrors, textiles and more. Begin with basic carpentry (cutting wood and glass, joining, and final assembly). Progress to advanced joinery and more complex frames. Discover a wealth of wood finishes, paint finishes and gilding techniques, from imitation marble to verdigris. "Plus: tips on cleaning and repairing frames.
