Litho in Stavanger

The exhibition "The Lithography in Stavanger" connects the two museums The Norwegian Printing Museum and The Norwegian Canning Museum. The two industrial museums share a common story: with the large canning industry a great need for printed matter grew, and it was the lithographic production that laid the foundation for the large graphic industry in Stavanger.

With a reconstructed working lithographic press we will demonstrate Alois Senefelder's invention from 1798. And based on local businesses we will show the technique and the products, from stone to colorful label.
