Fine Art Screenprinting || Maggie Jennings

Having a teacher of screenprinting on hand, I asked her to cast an eye over this one. Although she didn’t want to contribute the review herself, what follows is based on her professional view.

The first comment was that this is authoritative and comprehensive, giving lists of both equipment for a good variety of types of image and also explaining how to work with it. These explanations are in a step-by-step format that is easy for the non-specialist to follow. The inclusion of health and safety information is particularly welcome as some materials and techniques are hazardous and safe storage and the use of protective clothing is essential. The illustrations are well-chosen and clear.

As well as basic techniques, there is also an exploration of some more experimental ones and, again, the processes are clearly explained.

Overall, this is a clearly-presented guide that would appeal to both the beginner and the more experienced practitioner. The conclusion was that “I’d recommend it”.
