One of the characteristics of modern fine printing is the presence of print-related art in books, such as wood engraving or lithography. Art students and professional artists alike can benefit from seeing print-related art the context of the book it was created for.
To find the work of individual artists, look up their name in an author search [last name first].
Note words at the end of the artist's entry in the index, such as "etcher" or "wood-engraver" which will let you know what sort of art he or she contributed to the book.
Other types of searches are explained in other sections of this page.
