We recently added Le Serigraphe to our print library, despite that fact that it is entirely in French. I had flicked through it while at the Pompidou bookstore earlier in the summer and was so taken with the easy to follow imagery and instructions I thought it would still be a must-have. It got me thinking about some other print titles I have enjoyed over the years too and I’ve shared a couple here.

Low Tech Print - a catalog of contemporary printmakers working in the handmade realm.

Dying and Screenprinting on Textiles - the name says it all! I never trained specifically in textile printing, so this book was super informative. 

Pulled - Another catalog of screenprinters but a totally different group, certainly a testament to the variety of work currently being produced in the medium. 

The Printmaking Bible - a constant go-to in the studio. Covers all print mediums and does so in a thorough and incredibly informative manner.

We met Rob Swainston (Prints of Darkness) during our recent stint at Frans Masereel Centrum. He’s a long-time South Williamsburger and generously showed us around the studio pad he shares with similarly talented wife, Alison Dell.

Also - check out that view.  

This got us smiling too. Thank you @houseandgarden Happy Monday all! (at print club boston)

We’re a little slow to share these shots from the incredible Glasgow Print Studio, so we’ll call it #tbt. The studio was hand-down my favorite print shop ever - open access, university or otherwise. It was pretty special, and while we’ve obviously focused on their screenprinting facilities they also cater to intaglio, relief, litho and digital.

During our visit there was also a surprise Ciara Phillips sighting, so that added to the excitement too. 

A visit to Haven Press was long overdue for us. Run by a dear friend, Mark Herschede, this printmaking workspace and contract printing/publishing shop is based in Williamsburg is as literally choc full o’ the coolest print equipment. Have a look and see if you can find Darryl Hannah, the canine studio manager peeping in the last photo!
