The Gelatin Monoprints of Archaeological Memories by Pat Cresson

This is the third in the series of books representing my work. This book highlights the gelatin monotype prints of ancient and archaeological sites.
What makes this printmaking technique so intriguing? It is the basic simplicity, ease of use, and conduciveness to the basic tenets of creativity that makes it so addictive. It can be done with very simple tools out of one’s kitchen and just using a burin rather than a large press to print. The plate that one uses is made from edible gelatin. The effects that one can get using water based inks, beautiful printmaking paper, a burin and table for printing are sometimes as effective as those created with much more sophisticated printing techniques like etching, collagraphs, serigraphs and wood cut prints. And because of the organic, transitory nature of the gelatin plate, improvisation, exploration and unusual creativity are by-products.
