CENTURY, which recently opened in the Special Collections Exhibition
Gallery of the Morris Library, University of Delaware  is now available on

The nineteenth century was the turning point for technical developement in
color illustration.  At the beginning of the century, books with color
plates were hand-colored by the artist, using techniques dating back to
the Renaissance.  A hundred years later, the photo-reproductive process
and the steam-driven printing press took printing out of the hands of the
artist and introduced processes which would be used until the computer
revolution of our day.  COLOR PRINTING IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY documents
these changes in color printing technology by displaying some of the
finest examples of books illustrated in color, published from the last
quarter of the eighteenth century until the beginning of the twentieth

The exhibition, which will run through December 18, was curated by Iris
Snyder of the Special Collections Department.  An illustrtd catalog of the
exhibition is available from the Office of the Director of Libraries,
university of Delaware, Newark, Delaware 19717-5267.
