    Default books i should own?

    i already have andymac's book, and several other older screenprinting books.

    most of these, with a few exceptions, have a lot of the same info. basic details about how a screenprint stencil works, or different ways to apply a stencil to a screen (tusche, photo, screen filler, etc.)

    i've also read most of the threads in this forum.

    i'd like to learn more about the process of screenprinting, specifically how it relates to cmyk printing. or more production type setups.

    things like what to look out for or think about when designing artwork. i don't currently print anything for anyone else, other than short run (<10) shirts for friends...

    any ideas? i don't mind paying a premium for higher quality books. either they don't exist, i don't know what to look for, or they're all out of print...

    thanks.

    josh.

    You can read about printing 'til your eyes fall out. I would suggest just printing and learning from mistakes or going to a shop that needs help and interning. Books are for squares.

    Reading up on screenprinting is a good thing to start on, briefly, and good to come back to if you get stuck somewhere
