100 of the 19th Century lithographic images created and printed by Currier and Ives. This book has an introduction with basic information about the men who pioneered the use of pictures in printed material. They offered prints in their shop that had been hand colorized. Today we all see several of the more popular prints splattered all over dishes and coffee mugs. This collection offers a much wider view of what were some of the only pictures ever made of mid-19th Century places, events and lifestyle. The wide acceptance of these works made them perhaps, the first form of mass-media. These images have been carefully digitized, optimized and presented for modern screen viewing.
