Limited Edition Lithographs

From Wikipedia: "In modern lithography, the image is made of a polymer coating applied to a flexible aluminum plate. To print an image lithographically, the flat surface of the stone plate is roughened slightly—etched—and divided into hydrophilic regions that accept a film of water, and thereby repel the greasy ink; and hydrophobic regions that repel water and accept ink because the surface tension is greater on the greasy image area, which remains dry. The image can be printed directly from the plate (the orientation of the image is reversed), or it can be offset, by transferring the image onto a flexible sheet (rubber) for printing and publication."

Most printing deals with a limited amount of colors, typically 4 to 8.  Printing a lithograph that represent the millions of colors an artist has on his palette based on these limited colors usually presents an extreme challenge for the printer.

These Limited Edition Lithographs are a testament to the skills of the printers in bringing the essence and the spirit of the Tabora originals they represent.
