Founded in 1960, Tamarind Institute has had a major influence on art-making in the late twentieth century. This book documents many of the extraordinary prints that have been made at Tamarind and the artists and printers who have worked there over the last four decades. The author offers his view of lithography in America from the perspective of his half-century of involvement with it, and David Acton examines one of Tamarind's most significant contributions, Abstract Expressionist prints. Pat Gilmour writes on the art of collaboration and Susan Tallman on where Tamarind fits into the history of printmaking and twentieth-century art. With its record of all the printers' chops and all the artists who have worked there, as well as the many local, national, and international programs Tamarind has sponsored and Marjorie Devon's essay on current events in the workshop, this book is an essential addition to the library of anyone concerned with contemporary printmaking.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Such a rich survey is a fitting celebration of this highly influential workshop."
Such a rich survey is a fitting celebration of this highly influential workshop.
. . . an essential addition to the library of anyone concerned with contemporary printmaking.
This delightfully designed book, pleasurably accessible to the hand, eye, and mind, offers both a celebration of Tamarinds achievement and longevity as a site for making art . . . and a critical and historical examination of the ideas behind its founding.
. . . celebrates the artistic and technical collaborative mix at lithographys corewith some personality and temperament thrown in. . . . superb color illustrations mix well with photographs of artists, printers, and presses. . . . this work can be used as both a scholarly tool for the lithographs, and as a text on American lithography and its international influence. Recommended.
