Really great explanation of different techniques and how they've evolved over time. Good to find out what materials and tools work best for what techniques. Has a comprehensive listing of manufacturers and places where you can buy materials. A textbook of sorts for those studying printing, but outdated (1990). Recommend for learning about techniques.
