Nash Editions: Photography and the Art of Digital Printing

Overview

"This is the magnum opus on digital printing and the book to read before color calibrating your monitor or wondering about differences in pigmented and dye-based inks. With little in the way of “how-to,” the book focuses more on why and showcases eloquent photographs, including a heartbreakingly beautiful portrait of Marilyn Monroe, a naked World War II bomber tail gunner, and the inevitable “Emperor’s New Clothes” work. Equally heartbreaking for far different reasons is Henry Wilhelm’s essay “A History of Permanence” that includes a section

Overview

"This is the magnum opus on digital printing and the book to read before color calibrating your monitor or wondering about differences in pigmented and dye-based inks. With little in the way of “how-to,” the book focuses more on why and showcases eloquent photographs, including a heartbreakingly beautiful portrait of Marilyn Monroe, a naked World War II bomber tail gunner, and the inevitable “Emperor’s New Clothes” work. Equally heartbreaking for far different reasons is Henry Wilhelm’s essay “A History of Permanence” that includes a section called “The Totally Lost Kodacolor Era” that will leave you stunned by the corporate callousness that’s described. This book not only deserves to be on the bookshelf of anybody who cares about photography, it deserves to be read." -- Joe Farace, Shutterbug

Most of us know him as one member of the band Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, but what you may not know is that at the same time Graham Nash was rocking the world, he was also pursuing a parallel career in photography and digital imaging. Nash Editions—the world’s premier fine-art digital printmaking studio, which Graham co-founded with R. Mac Holbert—represents the pinnacle of those efforts. This book uses thought-provoking essays and glorious artwork to sum up not only Nash Editions’ achievements but also the state of fine-art digital printmaking. After a brief history of printmaking, you’ll reach the heart of the book: an essay by Holbert on the genesis of Nash Editions and fine-art digital printing (which details the studio's interactions with major artists like David Hockney); an essay by MoMA consultant Henry Wilhelm (which includes a technical comparison of traditionally and digitally prepared prints); and commentary from Nash Editions artists. The book’s more than 100 illustrations include Nash Editions artwork, photos of artists in the studio, images of the machines used in digital printing, and illustrations of the proofing process.

    Sort of a history

    The good, some fascinating insight into the nascient beginnings of digital printing. The bad, often repetitive. Sometimes incoherent. The ugly, the photographs are small in the ebook version. And the captions are sometimes misplaced. Was it worth $32? Not even close.

    Carrying The Creative Torch

    Nash Editions, predominantly known by those in the photography and fine art world, is the most prestigious of all the digital fine art reproduction houses in the country. It would neither be an extraordinary event or worth the commemoration from a book, if it were not created and maintained as the most pristine workshop, run by artists, for the most and caring reproductions of other artists and their work. Nash Editions was the forerunner in their field, the torchbearer of quality in the digital realm long before digital reproduction became commonplace. Their quality of work is unsurpassed to this day. It is only fitting a book of this caliber has been created to honor the creative and innovative efforts of Graham Nash and Mac R. Holbert. Congratulations. T. Mistocles
