Printmaking (Gabor Peterdi)

Printmaking (Gabor Peterdi)

This book is a standard work by a teacher of modern printmaker's art. Featured are following techniques:

  • Line Engraving
  • Dry Point
  • Stipple Engraving and Etching
  • Criblé (dotted print)
  • Mezzotint
  • Etching
  • Color Printing
  • Woodcut and Wood Engraving
  • and Printing Methods for young children

If you're a teacher this is a perfect book! It explains the working process, materials and techniques in detail. There is also an entire chapter just about the materials, setup and equipment and tools. I think the different techniques are very well explained and understandable. The illustrations throughout this book are excellent and showcase great artwork and the possibilities of print. 

I did enjoy this book and it definitely gave me some ideas about printing projects. I used to do a lot of printmaking like Aquatint, Etching, Woodcut, Linocut, and Screenprint but since I graduated I didn't have many possibilities to use a studio with a setup. This will maybe change soon. I'm definitely excited! This book helps me to refresh my knowledge and also to learn the englishterms and words for printmaking techniques.
