"Horovitz (director, graduate art therapy program, Nazareth Coll.) offers a variety of techniques to incorporate photography into art in novel ways. Detailed, step-by-step projects walk readers through transferring images onto fabric, polymer clay, glass, metal, wood, and other surfaces. Fine-art photographers have been using solvents to transfer photographic prints to alternative surfaces for decades, but the advent of digital imaging has greatly widened over the last ten years the possibilities for this technique. Horovitz discusses both familiar and new methods, including basic information on essential software like Photoshop and Studio Artist. This is a natural complement to your library’s digital photography and crafts sections." - Library Journal
About the Author

One of my favorite chapters is the last one, which is a highly creative chapter that includes sections on Cyanotype creation, replicating an early printing process on natural fiber surfaces, instant film transfers, and byproduct art. "More often than not, artistic souls find the beauty in nearly everything that surrounds them, even in the discarded products from various transfer techniques!" Ellen says. And she's right.
Another great aspect of this book is that Horovitz has access to many very creative students who are very willing to explore and try out methods and materials in new ways, and I suspect willing to compete with one another to see how far they could take these techniques. They have tried the techniques in their classes and enhanced them, tweaked them, and run with them, and of course we benefit from what they have learned. The result is a book full of very exciting ideas and images (full color), illustrating the limitless possibilities of digital image transfer. The text is animated and a delight to read. I got the sense that being a student of Ellen Horovitz would be an extremely stimulating experience, but for those who can't take a class with Ellen in person, I would recommend this book as an inspiring consolation for any art room, art studio, or art therapy practice.
