Pressing Matters – Issue 04
The passion and process behind Modern Printmaking
Straddling the worlds of fine art printmaking and the commercial printmaker, our publication hopes to inspire newcomers and give a voice and a face to the vast number of people calling printmaking their thing. Useful, insightful, practical, geeky, niche – call it what you will, it's a magazine produced by printmakers for printmakers – sharing their techniques, creative journeys and most importantly their work.
Printmaking is a great playground for ideas and there are so many great printmakers out there, giving new things a go, trying fresh techniques each time they print, using the whole process as a way to improve their work and, in turn, their creative selves. This issue of the magazine explores the broadest reaches of the printmaking world – both in technique and location – from a collection of huge presses in Norway to an Iranian Paralympic athlete who loves to print, from a Czech studio mixing the mythological with the modern to brothers using print to shine a light on near-extinct animals. So go ahead, get yourself inspired by all the inky goodness in Issue Four and go play.
