Synopsis

Reinventing Screenprinting Inspirational Pieces by Contemporary Practitioners by Caspar Williamson

Reinventing Screenprinting is a visual treat, irresistible to designers and creatives from all backgrounds. Screenprinting is currently enjoying a hearty revival as artists increasingly embrace the medium as a means of expressing their creativity in new and versatile ways. The screen-print 'look' taps in to the popular 'handmade' aesthetic as exemplified by other revitalised crafts. This book places screenprinting in a modern context, showcasing eye-catching examples of contemporary work and profiling the craft's most exciting practitioners. Reinventing Screenprinting features informative sections on techniques and applications, but the main star of the show is the visually captivating work itself. In short, this is a must-have for all screenprint enthusiasts.
