A.J. Vervoorn | Het Nederlands Steendrukmuseum (Dutch edition)
A richly illustrated harcover edition about the Dutch Museum of Lithography, and a tribute to the invention and development of lithography. Also available as a paperback in English!
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary in September 2011, the book ‘The Dutch Museum of Lithography’ was presented. A beautifully illustrated ‘coffee-table book’ in large format (available in Dutch or English)!
It is a tribute to stone printing and lithography, and to the Dutch Museum of Lithography in Valkenswaard. A museum of which Professor Michael Twyman (Reading University) wrote in the guestbook in March 2011: “A superb museum! I have seen many printing museums around the world, but this is the finest display of lithography I have ever seen anywhere. Congratulations!”
Besides a fascinating description of the founding of the museum and its first ten years, the invention and the global conquest of this flat printing technique, the rise of lithography in the Netherlands, lithography in everyday life and even the role of lithography in the manufacture of the microchip are discussed. Also interesting are the columns of 20 international professionals from more than seven countries who tell about their relationship with lithography.
