I just got my copy of Image Transfer on Clay: Screen, Relief, Decal &
Monoprint Techniques (A Lark Ceramics Book) today and read it cover to
cover. It's a little over 100 pages long and covers those topics in it's
tile in complete detail. There are over 60 how-to photographs that accompany
the text besides the many photos of inspiring work. This book makes printing
on clay highly understandable for the beginner. For instance, Paul goes into
detail on how to make a few different types of silkscreen and starts with
getting the wood and choosing the screen material, and then how to put it
all together. I was glad he is on the list in case I had any questions, but
so far I have none because he wrote the book so well.

The only thing I wish was that the book would have gone into intaglio
techniques. Are there any Clayarters using intaglio techniques to print on

Be sure to get this book, It is excellent!I have no interest in money made
from this book and nothing to benefit from the sale of this book. I am just
a fan of printing on clay.

I pre-ordered Paul's book and it arrived sometime last week. I too thought his book was great. There was a lot of useful information and things I've never seen before. I wrote a review on Amazon but your review here puts mine to shame. This book is a must have for anyone looking to learn how to print on clay.
