    C/U of a paint palette with lots of yellow and red paint on it. M/S of a printer at work - George Hardcastle. Various C/Us of him at work on making a Lithograph for use in Fine Art Copper Plate Printing. We see all the various processes involved in making a print and the history of this technique is explained.

    A large printing press is used to make a print - various shots of the prints being made. This printing press was made by Samuel Cousins, R.A. C/U of George as he concentrates on his work. Print is peeled off the plate and we see it in C/U. It is a portrait of the Regency actress Mrs Lister painted by G.S. Newton.

    there is no lithography done in this film: relief printing executed a la poupée (multiple colours added on the same plate for printing together as opposed to printing each colour separate)
