Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

Got a new book for Christmas and I have to mention it here. It's quite new, as relief printmaking books go, 1999 and originally published in Finland. The Art and Craft of Woodblock Printmaking ISBN 951-558-085-4

http://www.imcclains.com/catalog/books/artandcraft.html

Very detailed info on working with wood both in the western and Japanese traditions.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I'm new to this group so Hope I'm not adding something already noted BUT Waterless Lithography by Jacob Semko - Great book.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

Found "The Art Spirit" on my father's bookshelf after his death, now it's sitting on my bookshelf a bit battered and old but still a great book for all artists.

As listed by Ploverwing "The Complete Printmaker" by Ross. Romano and Ross is a wonderful book and covers a lot. I tried some of the children's printing ideas at the back of the book. Great fun.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

There is a product called Bubble Jet Set 2000 that allows you to print permanant images from your inkjet printer onto fabric. It is a great product I love it. Visit http://www.cjenkinscompany.com/?Click=3230

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I have recently gotten the books from Crown Point Press by Kathan Brown that come with DVD's inside them as a bonus:
Magical Secrets about Thinking Creatively: The Art of Etching and the Truth of Life

Magical Secrets about Line Etching & Engraving: The Step-by-Step Art of Incised Lines

The etching one is particularly wonderful and full of information I haven't seen elsewhere. I went right out and bought the inexpensive tool she mentions to bevel copper plates and I LOVE it. Both books are expensive but they do come with the video... and Amazon has used ones.

I recently bought one and am reading it. Seems good. As you said, a good all-round book on printmaking.

Mine is the second 1990 edition. Wish they are bringing out a new edition.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I need to give some follow-up comments. This printmaking book is good. But underfortunately the printer's bookbinding is no good.

I am not rough handling the book. But it separates off at the spine, and the pages come off one by one.

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

Mine is well bound, so I am not running into the same problem. Hopefully you can just contact either the seller or the publisher to get it replaced?

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I was just about to ask about recommended books and found this thread.
It is a bit overwhelming though, even to a bookaholic like me!
If I were to get ONE book that just covered the basics, and maybe the terminology and explanations of editions, signing, etc., which would it be?
I have already started carving lino blocks on my own, learning as I go, but I'd still like a handy reference book. Thanks in advance!

Hi Lana and welcome to the Printmaking forum!!

As far as getting started, quite frankly, the The Complete Printmaker - John Ross, Clare Romano, Tim Ross, ISBN 0-02-927371-4 (or paperback ISBN 0-02-927372-2) covers pretty much all printmaking techniques, at least generally, and gives you a good idea about some of the basics you're interested in. It also discusses some of the history of printmaking. It's also easy to find in many libraries, especially larger ones, as it is such a good all-rounder.

Good luck! Feel free to post comments to existing threads, or create a new thread to start a new discussion on any printmaking related topic you might be interested in!

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

I recently purchased the updated soft cover Printmaking for beginners by Jane Stobart - ISBN #0823043800
it is under $25 and one of the best reference books for both beginners and advanced printmakers that I can recommend

Re: Printmaking resources in type - contributions from printers

So many books I want to read so little time. x.x Where to begin, where to begin. Seeing as printmaking is my major I want to learn it all so I plan to start a collection of referrence books. So many thanks for these suggestions guys. Its just a shame theres like zero good bookstores out here so I'll have to find them online instead.
