Dear Fellow Printmakers, In April, my plan is to launch The Australian Book Arts Journal for book artists, printmakers, calligraphers and writers! The theme for the first issue is Beginnings. If you have any article or story that you think might make an impact, a review of a book, a review with pics of an exhibition, a technique article or tutorial with images, please contact me at the journal is exclusively Australian content. I am most excited about publishing this quarterly journal and hope you will see it as a vehicle for your work - besides, there is nothing like a book in the hand!

Anyone used a paster making machine as an experiemental home print press? Heard its quite good for flexible plates (ie, not zinc etc..) when you dont have access to a proper press........

The secret to printing on film for screen positives is to apply a dusting of talcom powder over the top. Then blow it off. Don't wipe it.

This print was 1 meter x 1/2 meter and printing the lino on the presses available (Glasgow Print workshop) wasn't gonna happen easily so I used that technique and screened it.

Hello Nancy. Welcome to the forum. There is always much to be learned and taught not always from the sources we expect. There are certainly some pros on this site but most are just like you and me... artists who are driven to use books (and prints) to communicate. It's nice to belong and it's nice to have you here. Best wishes to you.

Hello to the printmaking, fine press and letter press forum. I have no idea about correct protocol, but it seemed that perhaps I should introduce myself as I'm a new member. Frankly I have not participated in many on-line forums, so I'm a bit new at this. I am more a printmaker than a book artist, although my goal is to combine the two. I have made a few simple journals and books. I live and work in France, although I'm originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. I hope to learn a lot from all you pros.
