Artist's Proof is a nonprofit journal published annually by the Pratt Institute Graphic Art Center.
"In the fall of 1966 The Pratt Graphic Art Center will be ten successful years old. the handful of artists with whom we started has grown into the hundreds coming to us from all over the world for guidance, inspiration, instruction, or just plain convenience. With this growth comes the need for expansion of services, quarters, and equipment. This journal called 'Artist's Proof' has its reasons, too, to celebrate. It was started on a shoe string, but with much faith and enthusiasm. The first issue, no out of print, was printed in an edition of 2,500. The present one, combining Numbers 9 and 10, comes out in a new, more durable dress, a bound annual printed in an edition of 7,000 and celebrating The Pratt Graphic Art Center's tenth anniversary. [...] In [the] spirit of confronting exploration and inventiveness, our annual is dedicated to the young artists wherever they are. [...] It is a small but significant selection from a vast reservoir of talent worthy of enjoyment and consideration. The artists range in age from eighteen to thirty-five and come from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, France, Israel, India, Korea, and the United States. Although their work covers a wide area of style, media, and expression, it is interesting to note a new concern for the human predicament, a flight into super-realism, and a preponderance of the intaglio medium -- so exacting and so demanding of technical skill. It will e enlightening to follow the work of our young printmakers and to evaluate it again ten years from now." -- Description taken from the Editorial in the front of the book.
