Scope and content

File consists of material related to Harrison lithography. TH imagery was produced by offset lithography for many purposes – these are distinct from limited edition screen prints (“serigraph”) referred to as “prints” in this fonds and also distinct from “limited edition prints” which were briefly produced by Rie Munoz of Anchorage, and of which Harrison did not approve. Many different agencies were permitted to produce posters using Harrison imagery, most prominently ProCreations who produced posters for Expo 86 in Vancouver.
