The Thomas Ross Collection

For hundreds of years the skill of craftsman and artists have created the lasting art-forms known as engraving and etching. This is an introductory glimpse into the art and craft associated with the original form of art publishing, at the old established firm of Thomas Ross

Hand Printing
At Thomas Ross, little has changed in methods since the earliest days of the firm in 1700. To begin printing, the copper plate (often a century or more old) is coated with highly viscous ink. The printer then works the ink using his hand and a special form of muslin into the fine etched and engraved lines and crevices of the plate, whilst wiping the excess from the plate surface.

Water-Colouring
After printing theses exquisite pieces are water-coloured individually by artists in the studio following original patterns and using methods passed down over the centuries.

Our catalogues consist of over 600 hand coloured prints. For a full listing of prints please consult our catalogues at the shop. Both CDs and catalogues are available for loan for a short period of time.
