This book is a companion piece to Jan Koblasa: Intaglio Prints, which was published in 2010. Taken together, these books make all of Koblasa’s graphic work available to audiences across the world. Filled with high-quality color reproductions of selected monotypes, lithographs, woodblock prints, screen prints, and computer graphics from the mid-twentieth century to the present, this book also includes an artist’s timeline, updated to 2012, an overview of exhibitions and projects, and a list of his works in collections.
