All of the artists included in Printmaking are 'self-published' in that they print their own images in editions of fewer than fifty impressions or they execute works that are one-of-a-kind in nature. In every case, the artist is responsible for the entire process -- from conceptualisation to design, production, and eventual distribution. Each chapter presents an overview of the artists' lives, a statement about their aesthetic intent, an explanation of the techniques used in their work, and black and white as well as colour reproductions of their prints. In all cases, the artists have exhibited a strong expertise, commitment, and a reverence for the print tradition. Various processes employed by the artists, such as lithography, intaglio, paper-making, silkscreen, and collagraphy, represent the different techniques, styles, uses of media, and attitudes toward the production of prints. By incorporating written statements from all of the individuals featured in this publication, E C Cunningham has enabled the individuals to speak for themselves, effectively capturing their knowledge and their unique personalities.
