This is one of two books written on this topic in English. The other is "Regency to Empire, French Printmaking 1715-1814" (1984). "Colorful Impressions..." (2004) is an excellent source book for eighteenth century prints and printmakers who practiced their craft between 1750-1800. Essays are: "Color Printing before 1730", "Marketing Colored Prints in Eighteenth Century France", "The Craft of Color Printing" and "A Collector's Perspective". Every outstanding reproduction is in color. Every major printmaker is represented~ Demarteau, Bonnet, Janinet, Descourtis and Debucourt~ as well as secondary printers. Many of these printmakers reproduced works by the leading French painters of the Eighteenth century~ Chardin, Boucher, Fragonard, Watteau. The layout of text with reproductions is stellar! The hardcover binding is firm.
