In her introduction, Nan Rosenthal discusses Hodgkin's career as a printmaker. This is followed by an in-depth essay by Liesbeth Heenk charting the different phases in Hodgkin's printmaking from 1953 through to 2002, and an interview by Heenk with the artist. These three sections are lavishly illustrated with over 80 colour plates. The catalogue raisonne includes over 100 published prints, two books illustrated with Hodgkin's prints, three uneditioned prints and eleven limited edition reproductive prints. All of the printing details are given and, where appropriate, literature references citing discussions about the prints. A chronology, list of exhibitions and bibliography complete the exhaustive reference section of the book.
