Intaglio: The complete safety-first system for creative printmaking : Book by Robert Adam and Carol Robertson (hardback).
With clear step-by-step instructions and over 200 illustrations, this beautifully illustrated book describes methods which, while employing a strong traditional basis, achieve stunning prints the modern way – safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly.
Covering every stage of the plate-making and printing process, it opens up creative possibilities for beginners and experienced printmakers alike. Whichever technique you wish to experiment with – acrylic-resist etching methods such as aquatint and photo-etching, or collagraphy and photocollagraphy, or engraving, drypoint, mezzotint, burnishing and air-abrading – classically trained printmakers Robert Adam and Carol Robertson show you how to do it.
From setting up and equipping an intaglio studio to presenting finished prints, this comprehensive reference book – complete with list of international suppliers and glossary – is the only resource any practitioner, educator or student will need.
Robert Adam was educated at the University of Cambridge, Edinburgh College of Art and the Slade, London. Carol Robertson studied fine art printmaking at Gray s School of Art. They have pioneered safer working practices and have developed an extensive educational programme. They set up Graal Press, where they continue their research and educational work, and collaborate with leading artists on creative projects.
