Library Journal Review

These two volumes are excellent guides to the very latest in printmaking techniques. Stobart's is a basic guide to the processes of monotype, relief, intaglio, collograph, screen, and lithography. She makes highly creative use of the media. For students wanting a more traditional examination of the subject, see Susan Lambert's Prints: Art and Techniques, which uses examples from Hogarth to Vasarely. Westley's volume encompasses the many exciting and imaginative developments in relief printmaking in recent years. She describes both traditional and progressive modes of practice and illustrates the growing crossover between Eastern and Western printmaking. Both books are recommended. (c) Copyright 2010.
