Description of Buyer's Guide to Prints

For the prospective buyer, the world of printmaking can be overwhelming. Intaglio, lithography, aquatint, sugarlift... even the language of printmaking has the potential to confuse. Helen Rosslyn, a print specialist and Director of the London Original Print Fair, provides her expert insider advice in this straight-talking guide. She explains the techniques used by today's printmakers, accompanied by a brief history of printmaking. A comprehensive glossary elucidates printmaking terms, including the newer language of digital printmaking. Rosslyn answers the commonly asked questions to help the reader navigate this often mysterious world. There are tips and expert advice from artists, print dealers, paper conservators, picture framers and art handlers, alongside reproductions of some of the finest prints from the collection of the Royal Academy of Arts, making this book the perfect companion for anyone interested in buying or collecting prints, whether old master or contemporary. A Buyer's Guide to Prints is published in association with the London Original Print Fair, held each year at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
