Lonnie Tettaton is a legend of American sign painting and hand lettering. He made a living painting signs and teaching classes in St. Louis, Missouri. His many publications served as curriculum for his students in the ’80s and ’90s, and now they’re practical materials turned relics.
In Screen Printing the Easy Way, Tettaton extensively outlines affordable screen printing from start to finish — from fabricating screens to direct emulsion to burning screens to paper stencils. Charming hand-drawn diagrams and illustrations adorn the pages alongside Tettaton’s clear and matter-of-fact descriptions of practice. This is a lovely book for a newbie with some so-called sick designs begging to be printed or a pro that wants a classic by one of the masters for the bookshelf.
