About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A History of Chromolithography. Printed Colour For All. by TWYMAN, Michael..

Description:

large quarto, 728 pp. The book is the first since the process was in its heyday to offer a detailed account of how chromolithographs were made, tracing the evolution of this hand-drawn color-printing process from its tentative beginnings in Germany in the early nineteenth century to its spread from Europe to the United States and beyond. Drawing on a variety of sources - manuals, journals, correspondence, preparatory drawings, proofs, interviews with people in the trade, as well as the products themselves - the author provides fascinating insights into the methods and skills of the chromolithographer. This is also the first book to consider chromolithography from a global standpoint. It gives particular attention to the movement of artists, printers, equipment, materials, products, and ideas across national boundaries, and contextualizes all this with respect to the development of the lithographic trade and its organization. At one end of the market chromolithography met a voracious demand for color printing in everyday life; at the other, it was applied to work of real quality: illustrations (for science, art, architecture, and design), reproductions of famous and popular paintings, maps and atlases, facsimiles of manuscripts, book covers, posters, and high-end product catalogues. All are discussed in the context of other color processes and illustrated with examples drawn from a dozen or so countries. With 850 color illustrations and an extensive index, this book is an essential resource for those interested in chromolithography. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description The British Library and Oak Knoll Press, London and New Castle, DE, 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: new. 728 pp., illustrated, large thick quarto, 9 x 12", printed dustjacket. An exhaustive, detailed history of the chromolithographic printing method. Encyclopedic in scope, the four main themes of this volume, each comprising multiple subsections, are titled (i) From 1818 to 1970; (ii) The Lithographic trade; (iii) How a chromolithograph was made; and (iv) Several processes in one. Profusely illustrated in color and b&w. With a glossary, bibliography and index. Well-designed by Rob Banham. "A History of Chromolithography is a great book about a great subject. It deals with its history and practice in infinite but never boring detail. [Author Michael] Twyman never loses touch with the social background that influenced its progress and which it did so much to colour, both literally and figuratively. It is not too much to say that chromolithography awoke a vast new public to the existence of colour as an element of life, rather than taking it for granted, just as later colour photography and color television aroused new sensibilities previously latent." (Nicolas Barker, in The Book Collector, Spring 2015). This essential reference is now out of print. New copy, tiny bump to one corner. Bookseller Inventory # 1570
