Advert for JM Kronheim & Co, printer
Medium: Print on paper
This leaflet is advertising the printing services of 'J. M. Kronheim'. In the 19th century printing technology improved greatly and the printing industry changed beyond recognition. New machines as well as innovative techniques such as lithography lowered the cost of production, increasing literacy in the general public increased demand for printed materials and the development of the railways created a cheaper and easier method of transportation. Mechanisation of the printing process did not lower the number of workers and skilled craftsmen working in the industry, and independent printers like the one featured on this advertisement, were common.
