"Het complete handboek etsen" behandelt niet alleen de etskunst, maar ook hoogdruk (houtsnede, linosnede, houtgravure) , lithografie (steendruk) en er wordt veel aandacht gegeven aan de materialen zoals papier en inkt.
De vertaler heeft zich qua titel van het boek een beetje laten leiden door de Spaanse term in de titel "Grabado". (graveren). In het Nederlands wordt die term gereserveerd voor diepdruktechnieken. In het Spaans is "Grabado" een verzamelterm voor alle grafische technieken, incl. lithografie en hoogdruk. Vandaar dat benadrukt dient te worden dat dit boek alle grafische technieken behandelt.
Dit boek is een zeldzaamheid en hoort thuis is de boekenkast van iedereen die de grafische technieken beoefent en waardeert.

Gewicht in G oder Kg: ..
!

This book is in French, but there are translations in Danish, Dutch, Spanish and English.
Les techniques de gravure traditionelle reposent sur les cocktails de substances toxiques qui requièrent de grandes précautions d'utilisation et posent un danger permanent tant pour la santé de l'artiste que pour l'environnement. Des alternatives non-toxiques ont cependant récemment été mises au point et offrent des équivalents sûrs à chacune des approches conventionelles.
Premier du genre en langue francaise, ce manuel se veut ainsi un document de référence, réunissant les diverses solutions non-toxiques aux problèmes rencontrés lors de la création d'une oeuvre gravée. Il est destiné aux artistes professionnels comme aux débutants.
Toutes les techniques de la gravure non-toxique, de l'utilisation des vernis acryliques et des films et plaques photopolymères y sont illustrées en détail.
Quatre annexes viennent compléter l'ouvrage:

  1. La transition vers l'atelier non-toxique
  2. Le scan et le traitement numérique des images.
  3. L'impression en taille douce
  4. La gravure sur zinc.

Sinopsis
La motivación principal para el desarrollo de las técnicas y los métodos de trabajo que describen en este libro ha sido, por supuesto, la amenaza a la salud y al medio ambiente planteada por la tecnología del grabado en hueco convencional. Si las escuelas de arte y los estudios de grabado tuvieran que estar a la altura de las reglas y las regulaciones pertenecientes al entorno de trabajo de la industria gráfica, el coste del equipo necesario para la seguridad y ventilación sería demasiado para que una escuela a un estudio insividual le hiciera frente e, inevitablemente, habría que cerrar algunos. Además de eso, los químicos que todavia se utilizan estarían presentes en el estudio como factores de riesgos potenciales.

Gewicht in G oder Kg: ..

There have been dramatic changes in screenprinting since 1990. These changes have been encouraged by the demand for safer working practices and materials. New methods are radically different to the old solvent-based processes, and allow a delicacy and range of mark-making that was previously unobtainable. The use of water-based screenprinting inks has become more popular as artists realise the endless possibilities it offers. In this book, Steve Hoskins gives detailed guidance as to methods, materials and technqies, but also shows through the work of a group of international artists just what exciting work is possible.

Of all the sophisticated traditional arts and crafts of Japan, woodblock prints are probably the most widely known in the West. The bold yet refined compositions are as fresh to the Western eye today as they were when they first came to the attention of the Impressionists in the 19th century. With their fluid lines, intricate carving and delicate colours, Japanese prints are still as fascinating as ever.
In this book, Rebecca Salter takes us through the history of the Japanese woodblock, discusses the materials, tools and papers available (and their Western equivalents) and shows how to get the most out of them through interesting step-by-step projects. The work of an international group of artists shows the varied and exciting work being produced today.
The year 2001 has been designated the year of Japanese culture in the UK and this book will contribute to the interest and excitement surrounding various events.
Rebecca Salter has been a woodblock printer for over 20 years. She has spent many years in Japan where she learnt the Japanese woodblock technique. She has exhibited internationally and her work appears in collections throughout the world including the Tate Gallery, the British Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modert Art.
