Much of the Rue Marcellin prints and posters are printed using stone lithography, also called, chromolithography. In the 19th century, chromolithography became the primary means of inexpensively reproducing works of art in colour and illustrating books and magazines. Though laborious, stone lithography could produce thousands of elegant images without image degradation. Draftsmen and artists etched images and text into large slabs of limestone using a grease crayon and an acid bath. They did colour separation, using one stone for each colour on the poster, and then they layered the colours on the page. Although this breakthrough technology required a lot of skill and hard work for the creation of the template from limestone, it produced rich colours and textures previously never seen before, and even incomparable in style, look, and feel to today’s offset technologies.
The home décor wall adornments are a favorite among online shoppers looking for hard to find, high quality vintage posters and prints.
