Printmakers’ Secrets by Anthony Dyson
This book comprises contributions from individual printmakers, richly illustrated with examples of their work and studios. Each of the nearly seventy participants (all members of London’s Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, including several Royal Academicians) has been allocated a double page in which to offer an intimate insight into his or her working procedures, giving the reader the illusion of witnessing – behind the scenes as it were – the daily creative striving of the artist and the patient technical procedures that often underpin it. This is a valuable resource for students practising printmakers and collectors of artists’ original prints.
Anthony Dyson headed art departments in several institutions including the University of London and Birkbeck College. He established his own press in Teddington in 1987 for his own work as well as for the Tate Gallery Harvard University and a number of prominent artists and print publishers. He is Vice-President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE) and is author of a number of books about printmaking as well as a regular contributor to a variety of printmaking magazines and journals.
