What do all of these images have in common?

By Sarah Strapp

What do all of these images have in common? Other than being in The Filson’s collection, all of these images are prints. They are an engraving, an etching, a mezzotint, or a lithograph. These terms tell us how these images were made. Each is a different way to make a printed image on a page and all of these methods of printing were used as methods of spreading news, telling a story, or making a work of art. Can you tell the difference between these distinctive styles of printing? Come to my lecture on July 26th to learn more about how images were made before you could just click "Print." I hope to see you there! The event is free for members or $5 for non-members. Call 502.635.5083 to make your reservation today!
