Betsy Olmsted’s book, Hand-Printing Studio, is a visual delight, full of easy-to-do
projects with loads of how-to photos that make it easy to learn the techniques
and make the projects at home.
I don’t know about you, but my studio never
looks like photos in books, all neat and tidy with everything neatly stored and
arranged, so I really appreciate what Betsy said in the introduction to her
“I remember saying to Sara, my friend and
photographer, countless times that I could not believe we managed to capture
such neat and clean process images, while being surrounded by so much studio
chaos! Do not be intimidated by the
photos; you will make a mess while printing. Some of the things you do not see is all of the masking tape stuck to the back of the tablecloth or the piles of
unwashed spatulas, spoons, and palettes.”
So preparing myself to get messy, I think I’m
going to start with the squirrel (also known as the tomato thief).
Go ahead and pick your favorite project and prepare
to get messy!
