I've been eyeing this book on Amazon for awhile now. The book received fairly good reviews. I was disappointed!
A little less than half of the book is technical. The rest are easy screenprinting projects. I did learn some new facts, but their was a lot of vague spots ...
- Example - To determine the distance your light should be placed from image (during exposure), measure dimension of image. Ok, now what? Do I go by the width? Height? Do I combine height and width? It ends there with no elaboration.
I wanted more technical. I'm looking for a screenprinting troubleshooter. Mainly, I was hoping for a more in depth chapter on photo emulsion. It was mostly how to set-up for exposure and the rest was ... check the manufacturer of emulsion. What about exposing tips? How about tips on recognizing over exposure and underexposure?
I was hoping this would be my technical guide. I learned more from Lena Corwin's Printing by Hand. If anyone can point me in the direction of a more advanced/technical screenprinting book, please let me know.
