Collagraphs and Mixed-Media Printmaking



An illustrated and highly practical guide to the technique of making collagraphs.

Collagraphs are prints that can be made in a number of ways: from collages; relief sculpture; caste plaster plates; carved, stripped and layered plates; plates painted with glues; or from a combination of all these methods. The flexibility of this process means that it is one of the most fluid approaches to printmaking and allows artists greater creative freedom than many other methods.

In this book, the authors describe a wide range of techniques, providing practical hints about choosing materials and printing methods to achieve the best results. They also discuss the historical use of collage in printmaking, looking at the work of artists like Picasso, Georges Braque and Kurt Schwitters. The text is illustrated with the work of many different British and international collagraph artists, making it a practical and inspirational guide for both students and experienced printmakers.
