Despite that lithography is a process that is a little over 200 years old, it has not lost any of it's importance. It's two major assets are that is has a tonal range that can not be equaled with any other technique and it has a near impossible capability for detail. The fact that printing runs are unlimited, as it is a non-destructive process, is an added bonus.
The surface of the ground stone has an unequaled silky smooth feel to it, allowing the artist to explore the mentioned advantages even more.
Inks have proven to withstand the times, so you'll have an affordable piece of art for the rest of your life and that of your off-spring.
