Houghton Library: Graphic Techniques Workshop

Participants will learn the differences between the various techniques used historically for printing pictures -- woodcut, engraving, etching, wood engraving, lithography, and half-tone -- and will learn how to identify prints made by each process. A set of presentations and workshops designed to introduce graduate students to the examination of books as physical objects.  These classes will enhance understanding in any field of study as students learn to “read” a book for evidence of its production context, its cultural value, and the experience of its readers through time.  These classes can be taken separately, or as a set.
