Lithography is one of the oldest graphic techniques, developed over 200 years ago in Europe. The name itself has Greek origins, lithos (stone) and grapho (to write) and is one of the most complex art techniques and one of the most autographic of all the print techniques. Lithography has the ability to recreate the very fine nuance, the bold stroke of a pencil or brush with it's characteristic qualities intact. Modeling, tonality and the immediacy of the artist's hand are all preserved throughout the process. Lithography has become the technique of preference for many artists both past and present. The aim of this program is to give students and professionals a way to experience the methods of this technique by providing an essential textbook of the different stages of imaging.
