Artist Stephen Fowler publishes his seminal book on the art of Rubber Stamping this month with Laurence King: a complete guide to printing with rubber stamps as well as a handful of alternative methods such as using rollers, plaster, or clay. Beginning with a foreword by the artist Rob Ryan and a short history of rubber stamping, it goes on to explain the technical basics: what equipment to use, how to carve your stamps, register multiple colours, and mask prints. It is beautifully illustrated by the author’s own work and that of other contemporary artists including Rob Ryan and Jeremy Deller.
