New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc, 1971. Hardbound. VG, light sunning to DJ spine, light foxing to edges of text block. Army green cloth boards with green and yellow DJ, 464pp, profuse color and BW figures, plates, and illutrations. This volume describes the making of lithographs from the initial planning of the print to the printing of the bon a tirer and the signing of the edition. The matting and framing as well as the storage and care of fine prints are discussed. Printing from stone, zinc and aluminum plates, color and transfer lithography, as well as other special processes, are treated in detail. Every aspect is clearly and thoroughly covered, and each topic is illustrated with step-by-step photographs, charts, and diagrams. And, since the ultimate aim of fine lithography is to create a work of art, 37 great lithographs from the early nineteenth century to the present day are reproduced, 28 in full color. Includes bibliographical references (pages 449-453) and index.
