Currier and Ives Biography:
The lithographic process of printing art, prints, and posters from a specially prepared stone was discovered by accident in Munich in 1796 and was introduced to the United States by Pendleton thirty years later. Nathaniel Currier was apprenticed to this first American lithographer at about the age of eighteen. Currier went into the printing business for himself in 1834 and a few years later saw the possibilities of using lithographed pictures for the news media.  >>click here for more
