Description

Artist Bonny Lhotka’s Hacking The Digital Print provides student artists and photographers with new and unique ways to express their creative vision through inventive and affordable printmaking techniques.

Hacking The Digital Print includes methods for modifying images using custom filters and lenses before they are even captured by the camera as well as non-toxic digital alternatives to classic printmaking techniques, such as transferring images to glass, fabric, and furniture. In addition to recreating popular looks from the past, Lhotka takes readers into the future with step-by-step tutorials on 3D printmaking using the Makerbot, which is the 3D printer market leader, and the non-toxic PLA plastic in the Replicator 2 (retails for around $2000).
