The earliest intaglio prints were produced in New South Wales by a free settler, John Lewin, whose exquisitely hand-coloured etchings of moths and birds were published in 1805 and 1808-13. The first views of the colony to be printed locally were published in 1812-14 by an entrepreneurial emancipist and engraved by the convicts assigned to him.

From a culture of 'making do'; in the early decades of the penal settlement, the extent, quality, and scope of print production increased exponentially and kept pace with developments overseas. The backgrounds of the printmakers whose work is discussed varied greatly, with professional trade workers and artists making equally important contributions.
