Reviews
'A truly great read for anyone interested in how popular imagery has been disseminated into the public consciousness.'--Art & Antiques-- "Art & Antiques"
'Throughout his career, Stephen Bann has presented perhaps the greatest challenge to traditional historical interpretations of printmaking in nineteenth-century France. His thorough and innovative analysis of prints has complicated and revised the earlier assumption that the medium moved from being chiefly a means of reproduction of images which became obsolescent after the invention of photography, but finally triumphed as an original medium.'--Britany Salsbury, Burlington Magazine--Britany Salsbury "Burlington Magazine" (9/1/2014 12:00:00 AM)

'This is. . .an invigorating book, intelligently and attractively realised by the Yale editorial team. It is in every sense a work of distinction, enabling us to see the particular strengths and challenges of printmaking more clearly, touching on everything from the minute cuts and hatchings to the widest cultural ambitions.'--Tom Stammers, Apollo

--Tom Stammers "Apollo" (10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM)
"Offers an extraordinary portrait of printmaking as it evolved over the century."--Marc Gotlieb, Print Quarterly June 2017--Marc Gotlieb "Print Quarterly" (6/1/2017 12:00:00 AM)
