Waterless Lithography developed at the end of the 20th century in the concept of sustainability in artistic carving, which was obtained by using low and medium toxic materials. Anhydrous lithography is an ecological, clean and simple procedure primarily associated with metal plates. Nik Semenoff, the inventor of anhydrous lithography, uses the "oil repellent" function, which is diluted with turpentine, to absorb the thin silicone layer, which pushes the paints. This application is based on the principle of pushing the silicone's oil printing inks.Planographic (flat printing from a raised surface such as embossing) or printing (surface engraving like engraving) or lithography, lithography, water misalignment. The difference is that the image printed with water is the same as that of conventional lithography, the difference being that the silicon layer functions as water and the ink during the inking of a silicone plate is deposited in the areas of the image where the metal is exposed without silicon. It has the advantage of ease of use and intaglio printing presses offered by aluminum plates. Waterless lithography has the ability to produce strong tonal prints. In this article, the origin of stone lithography, new developments in anhydrous lithography and the main differences between the two are described.
