A great deal of wear to the cover - the color has faded away. Some scuffing / discoloration.

Barely fifty years old, silk screen printing or serigraphy has been adopted both as a commercial and an artistic process by thousands of enthusiastic professional and amateur craftsmen throughout the world. In this volume, one of silkscreen's foremost teachers and practitioners explains the entire process from the construction of the frame to the moment of printing your first impression. You are shown how to select or assemble every piece of equipment needed: the frame which holds the silk, the fabric and its attachment to the frame, the base on which the print will rest, stencil knives, guides, the squeegee which forces the paint through the silk, drying racks, and other items.

All five of the most general and useful techniques with respect to stencils are described: the paper stencil method, the block-out method, the Tusche stencil method, the film stencil method, and the photographic stencil method. Step-by-step instructions detail each technique. Chapters on multicolor silkscreening and color matching and blending make it possible for anyone to produce fine, well-registered prints, in fact, you can use this book as a complete-to-the-last-detail home course for almost every facet of this important modern art form.
