A resident of Peekskill, New York, Carol Wax is an internationally recognized artist whose oil paintings and works on paper have been widely exhibited. Her prints are in numerous museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of American Art and the Boston and New York public libraries. Wax is represented by Stone and Press Gallery in New Orleans and Davidson Galleries in Seattle. In addition to teaching workshops and lecturing throughout the country, she’s taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, New York University, and the State University of New York at New Paltz. She’s author of The Mezzotint: History and Technique (Harry N. Abrams), and her first 30 years in printmaking are documented in Carol Wax: 1975–2005 (Herakleidon Museum, Athens, Greece).

Richard Steiner was born in Saginaw, Michigan, in 1939. After working as a fashion photographer in New York City, he left the United States at the height of the Vietnam War. From 1970 to 1980, he studied woodblock printmaking under Masahiko Tokumitsu in Hiroshima. He is married to Kimiko Kuroda, who is a well-published translator. They live in Kyoto, where the large number of art colleges and universities makes the city seem a little like Boston (while Tokyo is more like New York). Steiner’s teaching stints have supported a simple artist’s lifestyle and have made the prices of his works extremely reasonable. Steiner also makes books and binds them by hand.
