Leveraging her training as a traditional painter and printmaker, Bonny Lhotka brings new innovations and inventions that combine the best of centuries of printmaking techniques with modern technology to create unique works of art and photography. After years of experimentation and development, these new processes allow alternative photographers, traditional printmakers, and 21st century digital artists to express their creative voice in ways never before possible. Both by adding digital images to their traditional prints and taking their digital works into the tactile world, photographers, printmakers, and artists will find that they can easily add these processes to their studios.

The book covers the basic processes and materials to transfer images to a variety of surfaces, including wood, plaster, stone, and plastic. It moves on to allow the creation of images on metal through either direct printing or transfers using affordable printers. More advanced processes include the creation of decals, skins, and complex mixed media compositions that are truly unique. For each of the more than 20 individual projects and processes, the book provides step-by-step instructions and tips suitable for professional photographers and artists, interested students, and enthusiastic hobbyists.
