Chromolithography is a method for making multi-colour prints. This type of colour printing stemmed from the process of lithography, and it includes all types of lithography that are printed in colour.
This type of lithograph is a so-called chromo-lithograph which is of highest quality and thus – though the litho is older than 100 years – the colors are still as fresh and vivid as before.
