Trumpeting for today. Another artist's book: Mozart, Matisse, Blanche et Moi. Drypoints, 32 pages.
Below are a couple of the images.
Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique. The difference between a
drypoint, an engraving and an etching (all three of which are intaglio)
is that lines drawn on a metal plate with a drypoint needle don't break
the surface very deeply. The tool cuts a rather jagged furrow which,
when filled with oily printing ink, produces a furry, shadowy line.
An engraving is drawn with a much harder, chisel-like tool (burin)
which cuts a deep groove in the metal. When inked and printed, engraved
lines have a sharp, precise look. Etching, which relies on acid biting
unprotected areas of a metal plate, can achieve a wide variety of
effects in line and tone according to the length of time in the acid
bath and other factors.
