How do I find out about halftones?

Halftone

reproductions of a continuous-tone picture, through a contact screen, which converts the picture into dots of various sizes and tone. Letterpress and offset printing produce images without tonal gradation, therefore making it necessary to convert continuous-tone values so they can be seen. The result is actually an optical illusion, making the printed halftone look as though it were printed with varying ink densities and values.
