Check out this podcast interview with Seattle gallery owner and print dealer Sam Davidson on the new blog Working Proof.
Sam's love and respect for traditional printmaking is so clear and contagious. An excerpt:
"Prints are so incredible. Their legacy, their history, where they came from, so embedded in history, so associated with the printed word, letterpress, their connection to illustration and how they reflect so much the society they're a part of in a way that is so direct and so rich; the surfaces are so incredible, the range of mark making that is possible with the various techniques... Once you get involved you're a goner."
