Non-Toxic Printmaking Book

Just a quick note to let you know that
Mark Graver's new book Non-Toxic Printmaking (A&C Black, London 2011)
has now been published and is available for purchase.

In this book, Mark Graver puts the case for non-toxic printmaking
and then discusses the various technical factors (both materials and equipment)
to consider when etching with acrylic resists, making aquatints, etching in general,
using drypoint, engraving, making mezzotints and collagraphs and using photopolymers
as well as combining various printmaking techniques.

There is also information on various inks
and health and safety measures in the printing workshop.
All in all, this book contains everything you need to know
to clean up your printmaking practice.
