One of the more comprehensive books published in recent times, in English,
on the subject is
Elizabeth Glassman & Marilyn F. Symmes: _Clich=E9-verre: Hand-Drawn,
Light-Printed: A Survey of the Medium from 1839 to the Present._ Detroit
Institute of Arts, 1980.
=46or more sources, check the Clich=E9-Verre article and its references and
cross-references in the _Encyclopedia of Printing, Photographic and
Photomechanical Processes_ available in hundreds of libraries easily found
on the Net.
