Unlike most publications in its category, Pressing Matters
focuses on the work of printmaking itself instead of the end result of printed products. This includes the techniques, the people and the passionate labour that takes place in the workshops of the printmakers. Pressing Matters makes a little tour to find about some of the hidden ateliers of print from around the world, and with Delita Martins in we see how through embracing a big variety of printing techniques she gives her portraits a sense of power and grace, and from Bristol we learn the story behind the creation of the Bristol Print Collective and the enthusiasm fuelling the creations of its members. Impressing.
