Pictures in Color

This is a place to celebrate the old color printing technology of Chromolithography. And others.

Wikipedia has a good introduction.

There dozens and hundreds of techniques and technologies used to print color pages in the early days. Some people are Very Specific about what they mean when they use the term, so don't be upset if we toss in a lot of variants and explore some alternatives.

Meanwhile, today, color printing is still improving, even as the printed page is being supplanted, slowly, by the mobile device and the tablet and the computer screen.

A slightly different version of this blog used to exist elsewhere. It's here now.

Pictures in Color / Color in Pictures. Like, Wow.
