The Art of Photogravure

Monday, August 25, 2008

Well that is something that I heard today for the first time. Photogravure is the printing of a photo on a copper plate that includes at least four steps from the time the photo is taken until the photo is printed on the plate. For more information about the term photogravure pay a visit to wikipedia. is website that tends to keep and spread information about this technique which is considered from many as the ancestor of photography. To get an idea about the whole thing take a look the photo below or even better pay a visit here (nice website but it has some issues with user navigation...).
