This guide collects materials related to visual design in Special Collections, particularly poster art, fine printing and comic books.

Pressure + Ink

This series of short documentaries from the Museum of Modern Art takes you through different aspects of print illustrative techniques. The documentaries all stand alone, though it is best to watch the general introduction (1:48) and then both the introduction to each technique (2 minutes or less) and then the actual demonstration of a given technique (generally 5 to 7 minutes). Phil Sanders was the director of the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop at the time when the video was done and is now an independent artist and printer based in Asheville, North Carolina.
