Charles Joseph Hullmandel (1789 - 1850) was an English printer and publisher. Born in London to French parents, Hullmandel initially trained as an artist. In 1817 in Munich, he met the inventor of lithography Alois Senefelder (1771 - 1834). The following year Hullmandel opened his own press in London. A major figure in the advancement of lithography, he was responsible for numerous technical developments including lithotint and colour printing. From 1845, Hullmandel worked in partnership with Joseph Fowell Walton. The imprint Hullmandel & Walton continued to be used until the 1860s.
