Description

Screenprinting has moved beyond the gig poster and the tee shirt. Centuries old and made famous by Andy Warhol in the 1960s, the craft is now enjoying a renaissance all over the world as contemporary artists and studios including Rob Ryan, Alakazam!, and Crosshair, among others push the creative limits of the medium in their work with textiles, posters, and more. This large-in-scope but petite-in-size collection features the best pieces from these and more than a hundred other studios. A compact history of screenprinting, a guide to the different presses and techniques, and a beautiful design that expertly combines a handmade and modern aesthetic round out this key book for DIYers.
