A&C Black Printmaking Handbook: Colour Etching

A&C Black publishes a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books aimed to aid teachers and parents in the education of their children, as well as printmaking and practical art books for hands-on crafts people. Blick is pleased to offer several titles in A&C Black's Printmaking Handbooks series.

In Colour Etching, join Nigel Oxley as he describes the techniques of etching and aquatint employed by the artists who worked with him at Kelpra Studio, where he established a reputation for using intaglio processes to create full-color images. Dame Elisabeth Frink, John Piper, John Hoyland, Jim Dine, and Patrick Heron are included, and the use of multi-plates is written about in great detail.

The author includes step-by-step descriptions of techniques he introduced, including the use of carborundum and polymer plates. Having editioned for many years, the Oxley relates his experience in complex color and plate combinations, clearly enabling the reader to have comprehensive insight into the work of the many artists included in the book.

This is a valuable and practical guide for the beginner, for those wishing to develop their printing and etching skills, or those interested in learning the demands of a professional print.
