About the PHOTOGRAVURE
This process was developed to provide an archivally permanent way of
reproducing a photographic image. Because of its high quality and richness,
photogravure was used for both original fine art prints and for
photo-reproduction of works from other media such as paintings. Photogravure
uses a flat copperplate etched rather deeply and printed by hand.
Photogravure registers an extraordinary variety of tones, through the
transfer of etching ink from an etched copperplate to special dampened paper
run through an etching press. The unique tonal range comes from
photogravure's variable depth of etch, that is, the shadows are etched many
times deeper than the highlights. Unlike half-tone processes which merely
vary the size of dots, the actual quantity and depth of ink wells are varied
in a photogravure plate and are often blended into a smooth tone by the
Photogravures are a bit difficult to scan. The depth and warmth of the
process is considerably more apparent in the actual print than can be seen
in the scan.
