About the Author
Colin Gale and Megan Fishpool are experienced printmakers who work at Artichoke Print Workshop, one of the UK's finest professional printmaking studios. Their work is widely collected and exhibited. Megan Fishpool is an accomplished printmaker and a respected tutor and artist. She is the author of Hybrid Prints and has written for several publications including Printmaking Today and Art Business Today. Colin Gale is a well-known artist and printmaker and the founder and Co-Director of Artichoke. He has written two previous printmaking books: Etching and Photopolymer Intaglio Techniques and Practical Printmaking Techniques.
The authors have come up with what is both a reference work that can be consulted for factual information and also a mine of practical background material that is informative as well as highly readable. 'Unputdownable' is not a word you'd expect to find in this context, but it's hard not to read beyond what you originally opened it for. * The Artist *
