History of Printmaking Text

March 6, 2009

One of my art history colleagues is seeking a good text for History of Printmaking course (including both art and design if possible). The dream text starts with prehistoric hand prints. She doesn’t want to use Ivins (and I agree). We looked at A. Hyatt Mayor “Prints and People” for its social context. Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Printmaking Assignment Ideas?

March 5, 2009

I’m seeking good new ideas for printmaking assignments. Could be related to the kind of printmaking or could be themes that have inspired good student response. Any ideas would be very useful.

Thanks,
