printing books

Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin and published by Melanie Falick Books, is a practical handbook for beginner printmakers and those wanting to venture into different aspects of printing for practical purposes.

This useful spiral bound book with templates in a handy sleeve, takes you through the steps to get started with various printing methods – such as stamping, stencilling and screen printing. Each section includes several cute projects and there is a getting ready section too. There are some very stylish and simple projects useful for home decor and more personal projects – such as stamped traveller pouches, stenciled lamp shades and screen printed baby quilts. Quite an assortment of lovely projects. Plus each project has clear photo steps explaining how to do it. A super stylish design and how-to book.

Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing by Mike Perry is published by Princeton Architectural books – so you know from the get go its going to be great.

Mike Perry previously wrote Over and Over and Hand Job – both super gorgeous detailed books. Pulled is similar in style to his two previous books – it is a compendium of amazing illustrations and designs – all screen printed. This book is both a survey of styles and artists working in this medium and a bit of a how-to as well as a collection of just amazing work.
