Baxter Prints

The New Baxter Society is delighted to have been asked to provide the Feature Exhibition at Art & Antiques for Everyone 4-7 April 2019 at the NEC, Birmingham. The exhibition will showcase the prints of George Baxter and his licensees, explaining how his patented ‘Baxter Process’ prints were produced, and showing how these prints made affordable coloured pictures available to the masses for the first time. The exhibited prints will tell the story of key events throughout the mid-nineteenth century and show how they came to be used on everyday objects, from book illustrations and decorative prints to embellishments for needle-boxes, pin cushions, calling card baskets, children’s picture tickets, reward cards, and much more.
The New Baxter Society is a not-for-profit organisation concerned with the collection, preservation and study of the colour prints of George Baxter, his Licensees and other Nineteenth-Century Colour Printers.
