Chats on...

Our Chats on... are an ongoing series of articles about George Baxter, his licencees and other mid Victorian Hand Pressed Colour Printers. For details about specific prints please see 'About Prints' everything else could be written about here.

All aspects about the printers and their methods. How the prints were used, in books, on needle boxes and other sewing items, in scrapbooks etc. It is a space for my continued research much of which has not been written about before.

The list of articles was getting much to large for the menu so we now have all the articles listed in this 'contents' page which will be added to regularly - Mic
