Printing 1770-1970: an illustrated history of its development and uses in England by Michael Twyman( Book )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in English and French and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Printing 1770-1970 deals with printing in the first machine age. The rapid growth and development of printing from the end of the eighteenth century resulted from the same factors that caused changes in British society at large - expansion of trade, improved communications, and pressure for the propagation of ideas. Both from the design and technical standpoints, however, the changes are reflected most in ephemeral categories of printing, and it is these areas, rather than traditional book production, that Michael Twyman discusses and illustrates as he traces the development of printing in England during the allotted period." "This book has established itself as a standard work. It will be of great value to students of graphic design and experts alike; at the same time, because Michael Twyman writes with an easy fluency and seeks to avoid technical terms it will be of considerable appeal to everyone interested in printing and social history."--BOOK JACKET

A history of chromolithography : printed colour for all by Michael Twyman( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers--for the first time since the process was in its heyday--a detailed account of how chromolithographs were made. But whereas contemporary writers focused on the methods and practices of their own time, the author traces their evolution over a period of a hundred years. Some of the methods he describes and illustrates are so extraordinary that they require readers in our digital age to suspend their disbelief. Drawing on a variety of sources--manuals, journals, correspondence, preparatory drawings, proofs, interviews with people in the trade, as well as the products themselves--he provides fascinating insights into the methods and skills of the chromolithographer"--Dust jacket front flap

Almost two hundred years ago the teenage John Phillips (1800-1875), who would achieve fames as a geologist, became fascinated by the emerging process of lithography. In the notebook transcribed and reproduced in facsimile here, Phillips recorded the experiments he made in the process between 1817 and 1819. The records of these experiments provide insights into the mind and working methods of a young scientist, while also revealing something about the state of lithography in Britain at the time
