WANT MORE – our first ever publication


by Gaylord Schanilec, Alex Schneideman & Patrick Randle

13 photographs, 13 wood engravings
and a conversation about the creative process

Want More  is a collaboration between three artist printers – the wood engraver Gaylord Schanilec, the photographer Alex Schneideman and the printer and designer Patrick Randle.


For the first time a work of photographic documentary – an important observational look at our consumerist environment and culture, has been examined and developed by a wood engraver. Photographs by Alex Schneideman for a large scale photographic project for a book, inspired 13 engravings by the great engraver and book artist Gaylord Schanilec. In images and collaborative text the two artists examine their specialist mediums – discussing the differences between them in creative process, temperament and thought, each creating very different images from the same source.


The book was woven together by the great eye and design of the master printer Patrick Randle at the Whittington Press in a glorious celebration of art, letterpress printing and typographic design.
