Installations and Experimental Printmaking

This book will reveal the secrets of the new experimental forms of printmaking that are pushing the traditional boundaries, including mixing conventional techniques with photo-emulsion, glass and paper, using Perspex and paint stripper, printing with sand, and digital prints mounted on relief surfaces. The book will also look at issues surrounding using the moving image, and encaustic wax techniques for printing, transferring, collaging and combining traditional prints with wax. There will be further information about displaying objects and installations, as well as a section covering the various advantages and disadvantages of a range of non-paper surface materials that can be used for printmaking.

The book will follow the usual handbook layout, with clear, practical, illustrated step-by-step demonstrations aimed at beginners or experienced printmakers looking for new techniques.
