Prang's Easter cards

Description

This advertisement proof shows steps in the process of creating a chromolithograph. A small hole in the upper right corner was used to keep the sheet of paper in place while printing. The chromist would line the paper according to the lines marked at the top and bottom of the print. The colors used for the print, here eight, are shown in order of their printing for the use of the printer in case more printings were needed at a later date.
