Established design icons, experimental students, innovative artists, and brand new entrepreneurs all find the allure to be undeniable, for both those making the prints, and those purchasing them. Filled with unique characteristics, small signed and numbered editions, quirky printing processes, and the human touch, this has fast become one of the most important segments of both the design and small business worlds. Inside Paper and InkWorkshop you will find immediate tools that you can use to improve your skill set, find inspiration, and learn how to successfully create these items yourself. We’ll take you behind the scenes with many of the world’s leading creatives, as they show you how they brought their prints to life using silk-screening, letterpress, woodblock, and equal parts inspiration and elbow grease.
