Mastering Digital Printing by Harald Johnson

Written for photographers, digital and traditional artists, and printmakers, Mastering Digital Printing: The Photographer's and Artist's Guide to High-Quality Digital Output is the first in-depth reference to the new world of digital printing for photography and fine art. This authoritative book, published by Muska & Lipman and available (November, 2002) at book stores, camera shops, and online sellers, provides: a thorough introduction to this exploding medium, instruction in the latest digital printing techniques, and an inspiring Gallery Showcase of the best of digitally imaged and printed art and photography.

Part overview and part how-to, Mastering Digital Printing not only walks you through a complete, step-by-step workflow for making a great inkjet print, but it also covers the pluses and minuses of using the print technologies of digital photoprint (LightJet, Lambda) and photo process (Fuji Frontier, Pictrography), dye sublimation, and electrophotography (color lasers).

"This book is about nothing less than a revolution," explains author Harald Johnson. "A revolution that, although barely a dozen years old, has enabled photographers and artists the world over to create and produce their work in a way that has never been available to them before: with high-quality digital printing."

Mastering Digital Printing is an invaluable guide and resource for anyone who has a hand in printing photographic or fine-art images digitally. You will learn about: how to pick the right inkjet printer, how to choose inks and papers, color management, print permanence, RIPs, self-printing versus using a professional printmaker, the difference between original prints and reproductions, wide-format vs. desktop printers, and advanced printing and image-editing techniques. Other special features include: an extensive resource section listing digital suppliers and digital-friendly galleries, art shows and contests; plenty of sidebars, charts, diagrams, and photos illustrating the book's text; and the first, accurate history of digital fine-art printmaking as well as the true origin of the term "giclée."

There is no comprehensive reference to the digital printing revolution like this book.
