Re: Printmaking in the Sun
I have purchased the book some weeks ago. The title was a little bit
confusing for me, as I expected something about the use of the sun on
printing. However, it is about the solarplate printmaking (gravure-like
printing using photopolymers), developed by Welden on 1972, and it treats
specifically this (and only) material, than can be exposed in the sun. You
get a plate to print intaglio or reliefs prints.
The book is well written (as far as I have read) and if you are looking for
something that completes your gravure, etching and other knowledge is OK.
There is something about photogravure on solarplates, digital images, and
intaglio techniques. But (snip) nothing about dichromate or platinum...
