The graphics of Hilandar are contained in a collection of 55 copperplate engravings from the 18th and 19th century printed in the Hilandar Monastery typography.

Thus it was fitting for Hilandar to publish the first collection of graphics and initiate the study of forgotten copper matrices in other monasteries on Mount Athos.
