Meet the Lithographer
Gaby Bazin (Author)
DescriptionDiscover the fascinating world of lithography, explore the techniques that make it work, and learn the secrets behind this truly artistic profession.
'Here's a first: a children's picture book about lithography. Once toddlers have wrapped their tongues around that tricky 11-letter word, they will be charmed by Gaby Bazin's beautiful guide to this often overlooked craft. We meet the father of the artform, Alois Senefelder... an 18th-century actor and engraver who experimented with stone-cutting, and learn how later artists have followed in his footsteps.' - The Daily Telegraph
Combining science, art, and history, Meet the Lithographer showcases a centuries-old printing practice that evolved into the process used today to print books, magazines, newspapers, and posters. This enchanting behind-the-scenes tour of the lithographer’s workshop offers an inside look at the tools, techniques, and stories that define lithography.
The second children’s book from David Zwirner Books, Meet the Lithographer continues our mission to illuminate different elements of the art industry. The playful illustrations, printed in three striking colors, offer a unique experience of the printed medium and showcase the magic of the lithographer’s world.
