This is a published celebration of the art of engraving
A beautifully produced, comprehensive visual and technical guide to engraved printing, written for students of graphic arts as well as curious professionals, Design to Touch is a labor of love. Co-authored by author, designer and illustrator-artist Rose Gonnella this publication introduces and explores creative, modern uses of this centuries-old craft. In addition to information on the process of engraving and helpful notes on industry standards and best practices, Design to Touch features thirty beautifully engraved pieces, many contributed by design heavyweights such as Stefan Sagmeister, Louise Fili, Steve Sandstrom, Jessica Hische, Jon Contino, Michael Vanderbyl, Michael Osborne, and more. “We hope to raise awareness for this book and for the time-honored process of engraving, and to touch a new generation of designers and show them that engraving can enhance any type of work,” said Auburne Gahlman, Associate Brand Manager, of Neenah Paper. Produced by the International Engraved Graphics Association, Design to Touch explores how to use engraving creatively in visual communications nowadays. “We hope this book touches a new generation of designers, and shows them that engraving can enhance any type of work — engraving goes beyond stationery” says the author of a book that is already a classic.
