Lithographs and Gicleés

Lithography is a printing process of reprodution which has been around for over 200 years. I worked with an excellent lithographer in Los Angeles when I self-published in 1998 and the results were all I had hoped for. These are high-quality four-color off-set prints, using archival soy-based inks on archival paper.
Gicleé is a much newer reproduction process which is digital. It is my understanding that the word is of French derivation and means "to spray with passion." Ink is literally sprayed on paper (or canvas) in such minute dots it would take an expert with a magnifying glass to tell the difference between a good gicleé and the original.
