Book Description 
  
This collection of essays, Volume 17 of The Tamarind Papers and the third to be produced in book form, describes the intersections of lithography, photography, and established printmaking techniques. Considering topics from William Henry Fox Talbot's botanical illustrations and the Lemerciers invention of photolithography to the sociopolitical prints of Ben Shahn and Walton Fords incorporation of the photograph in contemporary lithography, these nine essays mark the two hundredth anniversary of the lithographic process and expand the history of graphic processes in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  
  
The connections between lithography and photography are many and varied. This volume expands the reader's knowledge of the history of printmaking and underscores the enduring beauty of prints.
