a rare printing process, where illustrations are printed from a glass surface coated with hardened gelatine, used especially for art books and reproductions of paintings

COMMENT: Collotype printing follows the same principle as lithography. The image on the surface of the gelatine attracts greasy ink, while the blank parts are damp and repel the ink. The result is a continuous tone, hence its suitability for reproducing original paintings.
