Summary

2021 IFPDA Book Award (Excellence in research, scholarship, and the discussion of new ideas in the field of fine prints)

Prints and Their Makers takes you behind the scenes to witness the creative process at the world's top printmaking workshops.
Master printer Phil Sanders offers an in-depth look at this versatile medium and places contemporary prints and practices in the context of traditions and techniques developed over more than a thousand years. Clear and engaging explanations illuminate the seven major printmaking processes: relief, intaglio, lithography, monotype, screenprint, photogravure, and chine collé.

Sanders highlights the collaborative nature of printmaking through up close profiles and photographs of distinguished artists working with their printers and publishers. Prints and Their Makers features historical prints from such artists as Albrecht Dürer and Mary Cassatt, as well as contemporary works by more than one hundred artists, including William Kentridge, Polly Apfelbaum, Julie Mehretu, Richard Serra, Glenn Ligon, Will Cotton, Nicole Eisenman, John Baldessari, Chakaia Booker, and Elizabeth Peyton.
