About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for An Historical and Practical Guide to Art Illustration by Hodson, James Shirley.

Description:

Octavo. (viii), 224, (12), 32pp. First edition. With twenty-four specimens illustrative of various printing processes. These include chromolithography, zincography, photoglyptie, Ives process photo-relief, heliogravure, and others. Writing at a time of great technical advances in mechanical reproduction of images, Hodson provides an overview of each process, as well as "practical directions" and methods for executing them. This book is considered a significant work in the field of graphic arts processes, and because of its technical content, was likely heavily used by the many practitioners of the period. Nice copies are therefore quite difficult to find. Apart from occasional light internal foxing, this is a nearly fine copy in publisher's blind-stamped pebbled cloth, title stamped in gilt on spine.
