This is the third in the series of hand-made artists’ books produced under the auspices of the Katrine Harries Print Cabinet at the Michaelis School of Fine Art. It is both a technical manual and a creative exploration of the possibilities of the medium of lithography. Introduction by Stephen Inggs, foreword by Pippa Skotnes.

Included are eight original test plates and fourteen original lithographic prints by Stephen Inggs, Gavin Younge, Pippa Skotnes, Roderick Sauls, Eunice Geustyn, Fritha Langerman, Thembinkosi A. Goniwe, Bruce Arnott, Peggy Delport, Helmut Starcke, Malcolm Payne, Geoff Grundlingh, Zwelethu Mthethwa and Louis Jansen van Vuuren. All the prints were hand printed from stone and aluminium lithographic plates. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist. The aluminium lithographic test plates were made and printed by Eunice Geustyn as was the cover of the book and the text. The stone test plates were made and printed by Eunice Geustyn and Stephen Inggs, assisted by Roderick Sauls.

The edition consists of 20 copies numbered 1/20 to 20/20 and 5 hors commerce numbered H.C. I/V to H.C. V/V.
