Master Printer Craig Zammiello and Curator Elizabeth Hodarmarsky engage in lively discussions with 10 contemporary artists including Mel Bochner, Carroll Dunham, Ellen Gallagher, Jane Hammond, Suzanne McClelland, Chris Ofili, Elizabeth Peyton, Matthew Ritchie, Kiki Smith, and Terry Winters. These conversations follow ten unique projects from inception to completion, tracing each artist’s initial vision, the artist’s and printer’s creative strategies, and reactions to the final product. By documenting the dual perspectives of artist and printer, the book reveals recent innovations in the field of printmaking as well as the collaborative nature of art-making itself. The result is a rare behind-the-scenes excursion into the workings of the contemporary print studio. To learn more about the book visit Yale University Press
