Revised and fully updated, Artist Beware may well be the most important book an artist can own or that instructors can recommend to their students. It is a thorough and highly detailed examination of the hazards of working with art and craft materials, and of the precautions one should take to ensure good health and safety. The book provides full analyses of how gases, liquids, vapors, dusts, and fumes can harm the artist, and studies all aspects of safety in the studio, including the care, handling, and disposal of materials, the use of various kinds of protective equipment, and possible physical hazards.
Includes new information on:
the new exposure limits of chemicals
health clinics in the United States and Canada where artists can be treated for art-related illnesses
new, safer products available to printmakers
health hazards associated with computer art
and much more
Students, professional artists, and craftspeople alike will appreciate the possibly lifesaving information available in this indispensable volume.
