For fans of Iggy Peck, Architect and the Little People, BIG DREAMS series, this is the first children’s art book to spotlight the fascinating world of lithography—exploring the techniques that make it work, and revealing the secrets behind this truly artistic profession.

Combining science, art, and history, Meet the Lithographer showcases a centuries-old printing practice that evolved into the process used today to print books, magazines, newspapers, and posters. This enchanting behind-the-scenes tour of the lithographer’s workshop offers an inside look at the tools, techniques, and stories that define lithography.

The second children’s book from David Zwirner Books, Meet the Lithographer continues our mission to illuminate different elements of the art industry. The playful illustrations, printed in three striking colors, offer a unique experience of the printed medium and showcase the magic of the lithographer’s world.
