In this case the plate is book board with layers of other cardboard, chipboard and other papers cut to shape, glued onto or chiseled out of the plate. The end result is then run through the intaglio press under tremendous pressure. The paper has been dampened for a determined amount of time to relax the cotton fibers and help it conform under the pressure and the plate and paper are placed under heavy felt blankets prior to making the impression. This process is similar to the relief process of using a male/female die for embossing but predates it - is far more hands on and certainly a slower method of making prints., any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
