In lively memoirs and analyses, the artists tell the story of the evolving print program at Madison. The distinguished print historian, the late James Watrous, provides an introductory overview, placing the program's development in the national context of the American print renaissance. A concluding chapter traces the founding of Tandem Press, an exciting extension of the Wisconsin print curriculum.
As Watrous notes, the university's commitment has been "renewed again and again during a half-century when printmaking flourished in America as never before."
