Is a work of art still a work of art if it exists in several hundred identical examples? This illuminating introduction to masterpieces of printmaking reveals why prints can be considered to be every bit as original as any other visual art form.

Offering a fresh look at printmaking, this book is full of rich illustrations. By magnifying details in the prints, it explores the subtle differences in texture, shading, line, tone and colour that an artist can achieve through this money-spinning art form.

The book discusses forty-five individual prints, highlighting the genius of major historical and contemporary printmakers such as Durer, Rembrandt, Goya, Cezanne, Edward Hopper and Chuck Close. Particularly attractive to collectors, enthusiasts, and practising printmakers, this title also includes a glossary of printmaking techniques, together with indicators for recognizing them.

The author, Paul Goldman, is an Associate Fellow at the Institute of English Studies, University of London, and a former curator of prints and drawings at the British Museum. His other books include Victorian Illustrated Books and Looking at Prints, Drawings and Watercolours.
