This is a book for low budgets and high ambition. Read it and you will learn how to put images of things onto other things. You will start by rolling up your sleeves. Your shirt will be stained anyways. At some point, you will harness the power of the sun. Go ahead, look inside. You will see that you do not need a fancy studio to print a T-shirt or a picnic blanket. There is no specialized machine required to print anything you want in any room you want. A mural, a dartboard, a deck of cards, these are all possible. In a week or a month, you will wake up to find you know words like acetate and substrate. You will be comfortable talking about ink and shopping at military supply stores. Perhaps most important of all, you will be printing images of things onto other things.

An inspirational how-to course on Japanese woodblock printing's history and techniques, with guidance on materials and studio practices, step-by-step demonstrations, and examples of finished works by modern masters of the medium as well as historic pieces. A Modern Guide to the Ancient Art of mokuhanga An increasingly popular yet age-old art form, Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga) is embraced for its non-toxic character, use of handmade materials, and easy integration with other printmaking techniques. In this comprehensive guide, artist and printmaker April Vollmer—one of the best known mokuhanga practitioners and instructors in the West—combines her deep knowledge of this historic printmaking practice with expert step-by-step instruction, guidance on materials and studio practices, and a diverse collection of prints by leading contemporary artists. At once practical and inspirational, this handbook is as useful to serious printmakers and artists as it is to creative people drawn to Japanese history and aesthetics. From the Hardcover edition.

"An important verbal and visual document of a great period of American printmaking."--Gordon W. Gilkey, Pacific Northwest College of Art and Curator of Prints and Drawings, Portland Art Museum "A superb chronicle of a unique period in the development of printmaking in the U.S. in the post-World War II years. This is an excellent history of a gifted group of artist-professors who, through their creative and innovative approach to the teaching of printmaking, helped to initiate a renaissance in printmaking that has become a singular addition to twentieth-century American artistic expression."--Clare Romano, Pratt Institute, and John Ross, Manhattanville College Printmaking exploded on the American art scene after World War II, rapidly expanding from New York to the Midwest and beyond. Central to this movement and its development was the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where a group of talented young artists was making prints and developing a print curriculum. Progressive Printmakers documents, in words and stunning pictures, the breakthrough aesthetics and technical innovations that made the Madison printmakers a force in the art world. In lively memoirs and analyses, the artists tell the story of the evolving print program at Madison. The distinguished print historian, the late James Watrous, provides an introductory overview, placing the program's development in the national context of the American print renaissance. A concluding chapter traces the founding of Tandem Press, an exciting extension of the Wisconsin print curriculum. As Watrous notes, the University's commitment has been "renewed again and again during a half-century when printmaking flourished in America as never before."

Over the last half-century, Rudy Pozzatti has earned international acclaim as an artist, educator, professor of printmaking at Indiana University, and co-founder of Echo Press, a fine arts printmaking workshop. The 95 illustrations in this book (including 47 full-color plates) capture Pozzatti's bountiful creativity in etchings, engravings, lithographs, and collages produced over the course of his career. An essay by Norman A. Geske defines Pozzatti's place in the renaissance in American printmaking that was sparked by Mauricio Lazansky and his students at the University of Iowa in the 1940s and 1950s. Pozzatti's personal insights and anecdotes about many of the prints enliven the extensive catalogue entries, which, along with an inclusive bibliography and a compendium of the artist's exhibitions and chronology, make this book an indispensable resource on the artist and his work.
