This book was recommended by a teacher of mine at the Art Institute.
The inquiry was for further study of the various printing mediums available to artists. This book details styles and techniques used in older times as standard press practices, but, maintained today for use by artists around the world to make multiples of their original artwork.
Awesome read, and techinical enought to provide the means to apply the knowledge.
Highly recommended

I found this book led me gently through the techniques required to produce the finest prints. It is well illustrated, showing not only the more traditional black line on white paper but also complex colourful images. Step by step photographs show how individual processes should be carried out. It is written in the simplest of langauge - without being either patronising or condesending. This simple use of language, along with the examples shown and step by step photographs, should enable anybody to understand the process's involved to produce etchings.
