Since the 1970s, in collaboration with renowned printers and publishers, Richard Tuttle (born 1941) has produced almost 300 prints. Exploiting the unique possibilities of printmaking to make process, materials and actions visible, Tuttle celebrates the complexity of printmaking. Accompanying an exhibition at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, and published as Tuttle creates a major installation at the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall (Fall 2014), this volume is the first monograph on Tuttle's printmaking. These works, which he began producing in the early 1970s, span woodcut, lithography, aquatint and etching, and often incorporate printer's errors. Edited by Christina von Rotenhan, it explores not only the artist's unique approach to printmaking with scholarly essays, artist statements and catalogue entries for selected prints between 1973 and 2013, but also Tuttle's deep interest in the collaborative dimension of printmaking.
