Lithography, simply explained, is a printing process that capitalizes on oil and water’s natural inclination to repel each other. Since 1796, Lithography has evolved from a process using grained limestones and leather rollers to high volume, multi-color presses. Spudnik Press has unique facilities, allowing artists are utilizing this medium for all it is worth. Traditional lithography captures nuanced mark-making, and is a terribly expressive medium. Offset Lithography excels at self-published zines and chapbooks, and has wide aesthetic possibilities.
Recent work from our Lithography Department showcases the work that has been produced at Spudnik Press since we added Offset Printing to our repertoire. This show sheds light on how contemporary commercial printing methods grew from traditional lithography – that they are not too dissimilar at all!
