Since its invention by Alois Senefelder in 1798, lithography has always been perceived as the most difficult printmaking process to master. The technical skill required by complexity of printing from stone, has thus not surprisingly required some measure of collaboration between an artist and a printer.


In this book, published by the School of Art Press to coincide with the exhibition of British Lithography held at the School of Art Aberystwyth (24 October 2022 – 27 January 2023), Croft presents a unique studio practitioner’s insight into the history of lithography in Britain, providing a view of collaborative practice that is not often recognised, discussed, or even acknowledged.


The book is 285mm x 235mm, 160 pages and illustrated throughout with lithographs from Aberystwyth University School of Art Museum & Gallery Collections. Layout design: Isobel Gillan. Printed by Gomer Press, Llandysul. ISBN 978 1 7391167 1 2

Price £25.00 (+ £5.00 P&P UK)
