friendly.Covering every stage of the plate-making and printing process, the book opens up creative possibilities for beginners and experienced printmakers alike. Whichever intaglio technique you wish to use—acrylic-resist etching methods such as aquatint, photo-etching, collagraphy, and photocollagraphy; or engraving, drypoint, mezzotint, burnishing, and air-abrading—classically trained printmakers Robert Adam and Carol Robertson show you how to do it.From setting up and equipping an intaglio studio, through choosing a printing method, to collating and presenting finished prints, this beautifully illustrated and comprehensive reference book—complete with a list of international suppliers and glossary—is the only resource any art practitioner, educator, or student will ever need. 229 illustrations, 199 in color.
