Mychael Barratt was recently commissioned to write a book on intaglio
printmaking for the publishers A & C Black and decided to try out
all of the techniques that he wrote about.
His limited edition print O for a muse of fire
based on the work of William Shakespeare is the culmination of those
experiments as he has created a 26 plate etching which includes
every intaglio technique from drypoint and engraving to
mezzotint and aquatint.
