HASH(0xa25f5240) out of 5 stars Inexcusable lack of editorial competence Dec 28 2013
By Superannuated student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Identical text for different topics on p.75 and p.85. No mention of flooding the screen in single color printing step by step; mentioned but not illustrated or explained in section on multi-color printing.

Light box construction schematic on p.95 calls fluorescent tubes neon lamps, calls ballasts reactors on the diagram but ballasts in the text, and fails to say what type of tube should be used: filtered black light, germicidal, ...

HASH(0xa25f5a98) out of 5 stars Nice looking book, but I wasn't a pleased as I'd hoped. March 15 2013
By Sarah E. Hodzic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is laid out well, in that it's more for visual learners, which I really appreciate.
However, I feel like the actual instruction was not very thorough. I'm not sure if I already hadn't had a basic/beginners screen printing class if I would have been able to follow the steps without a lot of trial and error. I also had a very hard time understanding how to break up an images into 4 colors for multi screen printing. I think the book is fine, it's just not great. I would recommend it for people who have at least a basic knowledge of silk screen printing. I think if you stepped away from screen printing for several years and just need a refresher this would be a great book.

He just got his first silk screening kit and is anxious to get started. This is a great basic book with a lot of images to guide you.
