I have recently developed an interest in printmaking. I wasnt quite sure what to expect when I ordered this book. I just hoped that it lived up to the product description. It did and then some! I was amazed at the scope of printmaking techniques covered in this book. It ranges from simple monoprints, to multiscreen printing (screen printing with multiple colours), relief printing (remember rubbing on pennies?) and sun printing to name a few. It also ventures into somewhat more complex printing techniques including gelatin printing and printing with a termal imaging machine. All of these techniques can be done at home with with relatively simple tools and materials. The author also provides printmaking projects at the end of the book incorporating the various techniques described, including directions for making a simple monotype journal for storing your test prints. This is a must-have book for the paper or fibre artist wanting to explore printmaking.

Fantastic and original printmaking book June 5 2009
By bookarts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Elisha's book is full of wonderful printmaking ideas. One of the things I really like about it is that the techniques she describe seem very simple and easy to do, yet the results are complex and beautiful. Looking at all the projects made me want to just drop everything and get out in the studio. I have tried a couple of the techniques so far and the directions were very easy to follow and the results were terrific. I had a ton of fun and I can't wait to try more of them. If you are interested in using printmaking in your mixed media work, this is an excellent resource.

Great Basics Aug. 20 2009
By HuskerFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book to have as an overview of several printmaking techniques that are useful for mixed media printmaking. I especially like the section on collagraph printing, but all sections and techniques were fun to read about, and fun to try. There are a LOT of great examples, in various artistic styles, and I like the fact that the author used other artists' work, not just her own - I think that makes for better imagineer-ing to the benefit of the reader.

A Great Inspiration Book May 16 2010
By K. Kasabian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though this book does introduce readers to basic concepts and techniques for a variety of printing methods, its real value for me came from the excellent examples by featured artists. It was so exciting to see what was possible with the various techniques (silk screen, collage, monotype, sun prints) that I couldn't wait to get started on my own projects. It doesn't have designs and templates for readers to copy; rather, it encourages people to find their own voice using paper, ink, fabric and a multitude of other affordable materials. Recommended.
Basic and Practical Jan. 24 2014

This book teaches the idea of printmaking at its most basic. You can do something quick and fun for a greeting card, or follow other instructions with archival materials to make a work of art. Very helpful.
Not enough instruction May 9 2013

It's ok if you're into screen printing, otherwise I found it to be limited. I would not recommend it, sorry.
