Ernest Nister (1842-1909), publisher born in Oberklingen, Germany, best known for high-quality color printing and movable books. Nister began his printing business in 1877 when he acquired a small lithographic workshop in Nuremberg, Germany. By 1888 he had opened offices and design studios in London, but all of the printing was done in Germany, taking advantage of their high-quality chromolithographic printing processes.
