I will always remember spending time on small working farms when I was about 10. One farm was in Petoskey, Michigan hippy friends of the family. The other in Chardon, Ohio. Aunt Clara’s. It was so fascinating to see how the whole farm worked as a unit. Memories I will never forget. Lucky enough to experience it through the eyes of a child.

 

Smart animals are the pigs! The other Pigs. Favorite four footed, furry farm animals! Here we have old pig prints. Antique engravings and lithographs of pigs. Great old farm pig prints to collect. In the antique pig engravings, the original illustration was transferred onto a prepared block of wood, engraved with burins and ultimately inked up and printed onto pieces of paper. In the lithographs of pigs, either one stone, or many stones (used in chromolithography), were printed from key stoned limestone plates. Images were drawn onto the slabs with grease like pencils. The stones were emerged into nitric acid. Burning away the unprotected parts, this which was what would be left in relief, the image ultimately seen once inked up and printed as the finished illustration.  Picture the scene… 4 footed… furry! Oink Oink!!  Antique prints. These are great farm animal prints. Old 4 footed furry pig prints: great for the kitchen & your funny farm!
