This exciting new book showcases the work of a very diverse selection of 52 artists from 28 countries, against a spectrum of the concerns that inform the role and function of art in the increasingly technological global society. The mediums used by these artists range from new variations on traditional intaglio and relief techniques, to extreme forms of digital techniques, including time-based forms such as film and multi-media presentation. Printmaking continues to evolve as artists develop the traditional techniques and experiment with new techniques and materials. In recent years the boundaries between the once distinct fields of the visual arts have become blurred, and growing numbers of artists now incorporate printmaking techniques within their practice. This book provides a broad-ranging and challenging source of information on the most exciting cutting edge developments in international printmaking, which will be of value to students, professional artists and all those with an interest in the contemporary visual arts
