Printmaking at the Edge explores the innovative techniques printmakers are using today. The topics covered range from the challenges of new technology and materials (for example, the latest high-tech plates and speciality papers and inks) to the persistence of traditional techniques and the new directions they are taking (for example, digital techniques being used with silkscreen and wood engraving). All scales and stages of printmaking are dealt with. This book is a vital source of information for students and includes interviews with prominent international artists, revealing the secrets behind their work and the possibilities for the future. Included is the work of artists from UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Poland, Argentina, Nicaragua, Belgium, Lithuania, Iceland, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Iraq, Korea, Taiwan and Australia.
