November 8, 2013 | By |


Founded in 1960, Tamarind Institute has had a major influence on printmaking in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Its mission – to shepherd lithography from obscurity to the vital role it plays in art-making today – has been accomplished with great success. This ambitious book offers complete, illustrated, step-by-step instructions for the range of fine art lithography techniques practiced today; information about all materials and techniques described; and full-colour plates of more than forty years’ worth of lithographs created at Tamarind by renowned artists and printers.

This much-needed new book provides current and detailed information about all traditional materials and techniques as well as those that have been developed since the early 1970s (there are many). Destined to be a classic for every printmaker at work today, it promises to be the definitive guide for anyone interested fine art lithography.
