For the rest of the l940s Landeck often used both drypoint and engraving on the same plate, but after 1950 he produced only copper engravings with the exception of three wood engravings in 1958.This revised edition of a book first published in 1977 has been completely rewritten and expanded to include prints not known when the first edition was published—plus the prints made by the artist from 1977 till his death in 1984.

The first edition contained 127 prints and states- 164 prints and states are now pictured and described.An important addition to this book outlines Landeck’s participation in many national print exhibitions such as those at the Library of Congress and the Society of American Etchers. Reflecting the growing appreciation of Landeck’s work, the list of public institutions that have Landeck prints in their permanent collections has grown from the first edition’s thirty-one to this edition’s ninety-six. A new section entitled Notes on the Prints gives in-depth information on many Landeck prints.

An extensive bibliography is another feature of this second edition.
