A new book has just come out that focuses on the use of the CNC Router and lasercutter with print processes. It's called Post-Digital Printmaking: CNC, Traditional and Hybrid Techniques by Paul Cantanese and Angela Geary of Columbia College in Chicago. The book covers the brief history of technology in printmaking and explains exactly what it means by "Post-Digital"- using technology to create a number of matrices that can be manipulated in physical ways. It also features chapters going inside the studios of various artists who use the CNC as an integral part of their practice.

On page 39 you'll notice a page devoted to the Artemio Rodriguez print that was routed here on the Department of Art's router by technician Robin Schwartzman for the 2010 Mid-America Print Council Conference.

This book is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in learning more about integrating digital technologies with printmaking. Not convinced? You can read a thorough review over at Printeresting.
