The medium of fine art printmaking is often misunderstood, particularly since new technologies such as digital printmaking have emerged and become integrated within many art practices. It is timely to observe traditional printmaking techniques such as etching, lino, woodblock and lithograph displayed alongside computer-generated images or ‘hybrid prints’, in which several techniques are combined.
