Next to the legendary nineteenth figures Currier and Ives, Louis Prang was the most popular and productive printer of his day. This is the first study to re-discover this important figure, the printer who coined the term "chromo lithography." But Prang's interests covered much more than chromolithographic reproductions of major works of art. He was a promoter of the arts and art education, as well a major book publisher. A seminal work.
