General Information: Steel Engraving - To produce a print using this process an image is first hand-cut (engraved) into the surface of a steel plate. To make a print the plate is inked, then wiped clean, so that only the incisions are left holding any ink. The image is then transferred to paper under heavy pressure, in a press. The main characteristic of a steel engraving is that it has a very sharp, hard-edged, precise image. The computer scan above can only give a very general impression of the detail.
Size:- printed area 7.50 x 5.00 inches approx.
