"More than 100 such chiaroscuro prints, including ones after Raphael, Titian and Parmigianino, were on view earlier this year at LACMA...and in the show’s catalog, Ms. Takahatake shows step-by-step how Italian artists made these rich prints. This is an authoritative volume, and a handsome one too, laid out with spare elegance by Green Dragon Office of Los Angeles and printed on caress-inviting matte stock." -The New York Times
"Brimming with full-color illustrations of rare and beautiful works, The Chiaroscuro Woodcut in Renaissance Italy offers a fresh and informative interpretations of these remarkable prints, which exemplify the rich imagery of the Italian Renaissance -- making it a critically important and highly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, college, and university libraries." -Midwest Book Review
“Takahatake, the curator, offers a sharp surmise in the show’s first-rate catalog:....The book is jam-packed with new, technically oriented scholarship and scientific analysis of the blocks, inks and paper used, which helps untangle the narrative of chiaroscuro printing’s spread.” -Los Angeles Times
“The catalogue, beautifully illustrated with full-color images, is an important addition to the literature on printing.” -College Art Association
