"Usually, a comic instruction manual would be something intended for a beginner, walking them through the process and making it as simple as possible so they don’t get confused. While the book does take you through the process, it glosses over bits that a beginner might need to know (like, what exactly is a silkscreen and where do you buy the equipment to make one) and probably could explain other bits better (how to create a design for screen printing). [...]

While it might be lacking as an instruction manual at times, as a casual read it’s not bad. The second and third chapters are more story-based than instructional, though the third chapter, “Do-It-Together Screenprinting: Dream Job or Nightmare Job?” does explain the process of printing on professional equipment. It too can be confusing, probably bearing out that it’s easier to learn by doing than just reading about it." ( )

A fascinating graphic novel that details the art and science of screenprinting from inception to printed t-shirts! It teaches you how to build a screen, burn an image, test how things are going, pull ink, wash out screens, and creative ideas. A true joy to see the exaggerated illustrations while learning such a useful and practical craft. How to turn your home into a t-shirt factory! Essential for people who don't know how to screenprint or those who are a bit rusty. The expanded sections talk about John's personal experience selling printed shirts on the street in Berkeley and working on a t-shirt printshop. Crucial information and entertainment.
