Imprint Magazine

Imprint is Australia’s only quarterly art journal dedicated to contemporary printmaking, artist books and works on paper, and one of the few publications worldwide dedicated exclusively to the graphic arts.

With the Australian experience as our focus, Imprint seeks to engage in meaningful and diverse analysis surrounding contemporary printmaking today within a broader fine art context. Imprint aims to nurture the development of new voices in printmaking and arts writing alongside those more established in the field.

Imprint makes excellent reading providing information for the well-informed arts professional, as well as those developing an interest in works on paper.
