Description
A young boy helps his grandfather, an etcher, prepare for a year-end studio print sale. The boy's most important task is to color each etching by hand. His work is tedious, and his mind begins to wander into the world of art as he imagines himself within the very pictures he is coloring. He soon finds himself exploring distant lands and flying over his town in a hot-air balloon. Using a young boy and his grandfather as guides, Arthur Geisert explains how drawings are engraved in copper and printed. He describes the process involved in the intricate art of etching, while his colorful illustrations demonstrate the elegance and beauty of this unique art form.
