Publishers & Printers

Print making involves three distinct stages. Firstly, an artist (or, in the case of maps, a cartographer) creates the original that is to be copied. Next, an engraver (or etcher or lithographer) makes the tool that will enable copies to be made. This could be an engraved block of wood, an etched or engraved metal plate or wax drawing on a lithographic stone. Finally, a printer/publisher will print and distribute copies. The majority of prints bear three names that acknowledge the contributors to these three activities. For lithographs there may be four names as the printing and publishing was often performed by different companies.

Listed here are printers and publishers whose work is represented in this website. This list is far from complete. There are many other names that can be discovered by searching. Some of these publishers were also arists and/or engravers.
