The Printed Image

The Norwegian Printing Museum

Long before the written language, people communicated with symbols and images, and with the printed media new techniques were developed to reproduce images both alone and with text.

The exhibition "The Printed Image" concerns the production and reproduction of images, not only of printed pictures but also of paintings and photos. The concept covers everything from techniques for fine art printing to reproduction techniques, the history of photography, newspaper cartoons and clichés for reproduction in black/white nuances. There will be a emphasis on the professions, the work process and the tools, among other things in the photo engraving office.
