For the prospective buyer, the world of printmaking can be overwhelming. Intaglio, lithography, aquatint, sugarlift... even the language of printmaking has the potential to confuse.

She explains the techniques used by today's printmakers, accompanied by a brief history of printmaking. A comprehensive glossary elucidates printmaking terms, including the newer language of digital printmaking.

There are tips and expert advice from artists, print dealers, paper conservators, picture framers and art handlers, alongside reproductions of some of the finest prints from the collection of the Royal Academy of Arts, making this book the perfect companion for anyone interested in buying or collecting prints, whether old master or contemporary.
