About the Book
Muskat Studios is a professional lithography studio and gallery, owned and operated by Master Printer Carolyn Muskat. Anchored within a 200-year old tradition of collaboration and artistic creation, the studio provides a center for artists to explore lithography, monotype and relief printmaking. Since founding the studio 20 years ago, Muskat has worked with more than 50 artists to publish over 400 prints. To celebrate this 20-year milestone, Muskat has created a comprehensive full-color catalog that includes all of the work produced in the studio to date. This catalog provides a fascinating history of the founding of the studio, collaboration with artists, and an overview of printmaking from the past two decades.
