In conventional lithographic printing a fountain solution is applied to the non-image area of the master followed by the application of ink to the master. Ink does not transfer to the non-image area provided that there is an adequate thickness of fountain solution in this region. During the printing of a master it is desirable to have a fountain solution supply system which has a short response time, is capable of the control of fountain thickness over a broad range, and is capable of uniform stable control.
