This system did not only enhance the romantic paintings of the Victorian era, but also influenced the style. Luois Prang was a press printer who moved to America in 1850 and joined a printing firm, which he eventually took over. Because of Prang’s interest in collecting sweet, romanticized naturalistic pieces, he dramatically influenced the output of the printed material. He used his color printing presses to being so many different subjects, civil war maps, scenes, and album cards to life. This style is what began the creation of holiday, greeting and birthday cards. Naturally, it all arose with Christmas, first publishing an English Christmas card in 1873. Following this, came the creation of cards with the sweet innocence this style demonstrated throughout. Advertising ate this concept up, and eventually this put Prangs creations behind in competition, pushing him more towards some magazine designs. Once his daughter was born, he concerned himself with the art education field and started to make materials suitable and safe for children to use water colors/crayons. Color has always intrigued me, mostly because of the dramatic effect it can have on how people feel. There are always elements of design that can make something look either beautiful or messy, but color is one element that can change from culture to culture or person to person.
