LITHOGRAPHS are ...
... images printed in the traditional way on large rotary presses. They are created from a series of engraved plates often used for a single printing and then destroyed. While their resolution is generally not quite as good as digital giclees, signed-and-numbered lithographs from important artists are true limited editions that will generally hold their value ... and more.
