In this book, Alexia Tala explores and investigates the new
experimental forms of printmaking, which are today pushing the
traditional boundaries of this technique in contemporary art. These
include the usage of photo-emulsion, glass and paper, Perspex and paint
stripper, printing with sand and digital prints mounted on relief
surfaces. This volume also considers the role of the moving image,
encaustic (wax) techniques for printing, transferring, collaging and
combining traditional prints with wax.

In addition to an evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of
these individual approaches, the author also offers an insight into the
experiences and concerns of contemporary artists displaying
experimental printmaking objects and installations for exhibition. Work
of over 30 British and International artists are illustrated giving the
reader practical examples and inspiration to explore for themselves the
experimental aspects of printmaking.
