The Museum of Lithography (Litografiska Museet) is a combined museum and workshop specialized in stone printing. The museum shows the fantastic story of the origin of our modern communication society. The lithographers were proud professionels who with pleasure saved examples of work well done.
The goal is to keep the art of lithography alive. With workshops, school activities, exhibitions and visiting lithographers we show and practice the original direct print in old presses and in the high speed printing press “Johanna” from the late 1900th century. There are also artists in residence working at the museum.
The museum owns a collection of art works, posters, labels, letterheads, packages etc. from the 20th century to the 1940s. There are also approximately 1,000 lithographic stones with the old motifs preserved on most of the stones.
The collections are to a large extent based on donations from individual lithographers and printers. Most prints in the collections are digitized and accessible at caw.litografiskamuseet.se
