In his landmark essay collection, The Printed Picture, Richard Benson cites the very first prints made by man: hand-prints made from dye on the cave walls of Chauvet, France. He goes on to define printing broadly as "the production of an image, usually in ink, thorugh the means of some matrix that holds the pictorial information in a reusable form. Prints can exist in single or multiple copies, but in all cases they entail the transfer of information from one physical structure to another." Our Print Collector's Library collects key surveys and monographs by the leading figures of our era.
