Description

A tome of the newest advances in printmaking for today’s environmentally conscious art students, master printers, teachers, and artists
 
Etching, lithography, and screenprinting shouldn’t be harmful to the artist or the planet. With cutting edge, never-before-published advances in printmaking media, Printmaking Revolution provides artists, students, and teachers alike with safer, environmentally friendly and non-carcinogenic methods for creating beautiful prints. Inside, teacher and professional artist, Dwight Pogue offers groundbreaking information on embracing green, petroleum-free, nontoxic materials that comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements. With new alternatives for the modern era, and work by some of today’s most notable artists, including Janet Fish, James Rosenquist Walton Ford, and Louisa Chase, this book truly revolutionizes the techniques, materials, and processes of a time-honored medium.

Praise For Printmaking Revolution

The book’s great appeal is that everyone working in printmaking—faculty, students
and professionals—will be able to find something useful in it. More than that,
however, Pogue’s book makes it incumbent on us to act responsibly. Knowledge of
these issues is essential and applying that knowledge is required of all of us. Printmaking Revolution—New Advancements in Technology, Safety and Sustainability is an
essential manual for print practice now.
