NEW BOOKS FOR THE NEW YEAR
It's the day before Christmas Eve, and I got to thinking about Christmas presents - specifically that I should buy some before it's too late. I'm thinking that the time may be a little late for that, but I'm the eternal optimist.
What it's not too late for is some new books from Graphic Chemical. The latest additions to the Graphic Library are a series of books from Crown Point Press in the "Magical Secrets" line. They include, the photo at the left, Magical Secrets about Aquatint by Emily York, Magical Secrets About Thinking Creatively, The Art of Etching and the Truth of Life by Kathan Brown, Magical Secrets About Line Etching & Engraving by Catherine Brooks, and Magical Secrets About Chine Colle by Brian Shure.
Each of these books provides a tremendous amount of information on the subject. The pricing ranges from $35 to $60 for the hard cover books. Each book comes with a "how to" CD to demonstrate the techniques explained in the book.
These are some of best new books available to printmakers, and while it's probably too late to get them in time for Christmas, they'll be in stock hopefully for a long time, so don't be shy order them for your favorite printmaker's birthday, anniversary, graduation or any other festive occasion that you want.
