Now available to artists/printers with an interest in mezzotint!

'Mezzotints' By Cyril Davenport (1904) with 40 plates

This book is a great resource for intaglio artists and printers who wish to know more about the history of mezzotints;   it includes an invaluable listing of past printers and artists from the 17th century onwards.  Click the link above to read a section from this 300p book.  It was with great care and diligence, over many hours and weeks,  that I compiled the complete contents of this book and it is now available on CD.  This is an excellent source of information on the history of mezzotint and the artists and printers involved over a 250 year period to the end of the 19th Century.  The author also gives a good introduction to the principles and practice of this intaglio printing method.
