The photogravure process is an exceptionally difficult and skilful process which uses a copper plate etched in an acid bath to create an image. The copper plate is then coated in ink and run through a traditional hand press. This highly skilled six stage process creates a stunning artwork which has a stability that lasts for centuries. Photogravures are also revered for their beautiful tonal qualities.
Has authentic deckle edge.
