This is the only resource on screenprinting that any artist, teacher, student or designer will ever need.

With clear step-by-step instructions and 265 illustrations, most in full colour, this book explains and describes all the methods and materials that replace traditional toxic screenprinting systems, covering every stage of the printing process and opening up new areas of creative possibilities.

Here is the information you need to print using paper stencils, screen filler stencils or photostencils (incorporating autographic, digital, photocopied or photographic elements), with opaque, translucent, metallic, gouache or acrylic paints, on paper, fabric, metal or PVC.

From choosing which materials to use and how to use them, through setting up and equipping a water-based screenprinting studio, to collating and presenting finished prints, this is a really comprehensive reference book – complete with list of international suppliers and glossary.

Robert Adam and Carol Robertson worked at the renowned Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop for nine years. They now have their own studio, Graal Press, and teach at the Wimbledon School of Art.
