In this book, the first comprehensive study of Raes prints, Andrew Lambirth charts her development as a printmaker, from her early experiments at Edinburgh College of Art to her recent collaboration with Coriander Studios. Commentaries from the master printers with whom Rae has worked offer a fascinating insight into her practice, while the artists own observations reveal the important relationship between her printmaking and her painting. Illustrated with key prints from throughout Raes career, this book celebrates the art of one of Britains most gifted and original printmakers.
