Making Plates at Home

Many people are interested in printmaking but are limited by their access to studios and equipment. This book does not attempt to tell you how to print without a press, however it tells you which presses work best for each project. There are some suggestions on some presses that you may be able to find or make if you want to print at home, but that is not the author’s emphasis. What the author does best is demonstrate some good processes that will help you prepare plates at home. For those who are interested in investigating screen printing, there is also a section on that.

lots of quick and easy ways

to print and things to print with. I use it as a way to make sure I have everything before starting. It is great if you need a total kind of resource to remind you of other ways to do what you want to do
