Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I'd like to invite all Wetcanvas printmakers to join a Facebook group "Building and Restoring Artists Printmaking Presses"
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...7937544&ref=ts
The group is dedicated to pooling knowledge and experience about restoring or building your own printing press.

thanks- Larry Vienneau

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I was given some older books on printmaking yesterday from the new director of our community arts program. She had some of these in storage at her previous posting and said to take them and do whatever.
One of these is a softcover booklet published by Hunt-Speedball that dates back to 1956 with lots of sepia colour photos and some colour print reproductions.



The other book is a hardcover published in 1983 by Chartwell Books titled Practical Printmaking and covers Lithography, relief printing, screen printing and a short section at the end on process photography

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

A book that was handed down to me (from the aunt- an ex-art teacher - of my ex-wife) is Printmaking by Harvey Daniels. It is a general text about print making techniques, somewhat dated, but still finds a place on my table to reference every couple weeks. Lots of great pics. I even discovered a few techniques (transfer drawing, etc) that I am enthusiastic about. They have some techniques that are good for kids (printing found objects, printing impressed styrofoam blocks).

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

Bridog: Thank you for your post on printmaking books. What a great idea! I have The Complete Printmaker - Ross, Romano, Ross and it is a useful book. Keep up the good work. Geo

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

"Intaglio"
The Complete Safety-First System for Creative Printmaking
Acrylic-Resist Etching · Collagraphy · Engraving · Drypoint · Mezzotint

by Robert Adam & Carol Robertson

I have used it so much over the past few years - it really has been a fantastic resource. Carol and Robert really know their stuff. There are also loads of inspiring images of works by a huge range of printmakers.

£13.47 (UK sterling) I must have paid about twice this amount so this is a great bargain.

I paid a lot more for it than it can now be purchased for on this website which I just came across.
http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Intaglio-Robert-Adam/9780500286616


feel free to ask me about the book if you are seriously thinking of buying it aine@ainescannell.com

oh and as I am seriously sensitive to toxic fumes - this is another reason to get this book as Carol is also sensitive and it was one of the things that has motivated the realisation of this book and i.e., working in a more healthy context as a printmaker.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

Two others:

The Printmaking Bible, Ann D'Arcy Hughes & Hebe Vernon-Morris. 2008 Chronicle Books. ISBN 978-0-8118-6228-8

Etching, Engraving, Ruth Leaf . 1976 Watson-Guptill Publications
ISBN 0-486-24721-X

The Printmaking Bible is good for anyone exploring the many ways of making prints - it covers lithography, screenprinting, intaglio, relief, monotypes, you name it. About $50 hardback, but worth it.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers
I make linocutting but I like these books.
These are not how to make, but I look at the images and ideas.

I decided to get the ball rolling with listing several from my collection of art books (including author and ISBN so others can source it from libraries and book sellers if they choose).
I will follow Diane's lead with something like the printmaking techniques list and update the list as contributed titles are posted

1. The Complete Manual of Relief Printmaking - Clemson & Simmons - ISBN #0394568532

2. The Encyclopedia of Printmaking Techniques - Judy Martin - ISBN #1561382108

3. Etching and other Intaglio Techniques - Manly Banister - ISBN #0822602865

4. Screenprinting: Water-based techniques - Roni Henning - ISBN #0823056449

5. The Complete guide to screen printing - Brad Faine - ISBN #0891345442

6. Printmaking for beginners - Jane Stobart - ISBN #0823043800

7. Printmaking in the Sun - Dan Welden & Pauline Muir - ISBN #0823042928

Wonderful list, Bridog. I'm sure a lot of people are wanting to read up on some on these books for more information. I think I've read Jane's book once before, as well as the The Encyclopedia of Printmaking Techniques. It has been way back, I guess I'll just have to read it again.

Many thanks!
