New acquisition

The following new book has just arrived for the Chantry Library collection:

Engraving and Etching 1400-2000: A History of the Development of Manual Intaglio Printmaking Processes by A.D. Stijnman, Archetype Publications, London, 2012, 658pp. ISBN: 9781904982715
This book surveys the history of the techniques of engraving, etching and plate printing – ie that of manual intaglio printmaking processes – from its beginning in the 1430s until today. These developments are observed in the light of the coherence between the technique of the intaglio print (such as its materials and methods of production); the ‘style’ or outward appearance of the print; the creator of the print; and the fashion typical of a particular social group, place and time. Economic, educational and social aspects are discussed, as well as the dissemination of the trade of intaglio printmaking.
