Review by Library Journal Reviews

Printmaking is an accessible craft that requires little initial investment to achieve eye-catching results. Yvonne and Rebecca Drury, who operate MissPrint, a London-based fabric-printing business, introduce the ins and outs of printmaking in this colorful, charming book. A lot of territory is covered, from simple potato printing to screen printing, and the directions for each type of printing are brief and basic; this is best for beginners. The focus on finding inspiration in the world around you is a nice touch, and beginning and experienced printers will appreciate the beauty of the designs. [Page 100]. (c) Copyright 2010.
