The Printed Picture at MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art has launched an interactive website to accompany its 2008-2009 exhibition and catalogue, The Printed Picture. In videos embedded in the site, master printer and catalog author Richard Benson explains the nature of processes ranging from engraving and woodcut to modern dye transfer and inkjet printing. The videos are supplemented by a comprehensive glossary of printing processes, fully updated to accommodate the rapidly changing technologies of our digital age.
