This beautiful book by Stephen Fowler is a guide to rubber stamping, the simplest and purest form of relief printmaking. Copiously illustrated with the author’s own relief prints, ‘Rubber Stamping’ includes double-page spreads introducing all of the tools and techniques of rubber stamping, including reduction printmaking, overprinting, colour mixing, printing with rubber rollers and even edible printmaking. Provides a complete guide to printing with rubber stamps as well as a handful of alternative methods such as using rollers, plaster, or clay. Beginning with a foreword by the artist Rob Ryan and a short history of rubber stamping, it goes on to explain the technical basics: what equipment to use, how to carve your stamps, register multiple colours, and mask prints.
At the heart of the book are over forty inventive projects and step-by-step examples. These include designing typefaces and repeat patterns, collaborative mail art, creating books and zines, printing on cookies, body art, graffiti, making portraits, and translucent and 3D artwork.
