WE WALK IN BEAUTY
Intaglio printing process using a photographically etched copper plate that is inked and then run through a high pressure press which transfers the image to receiver sheet of paper with a platemarkChine Colle Photogravure is unusual for it requires a tissue paper (Gampi Yamaguchi) to be first airbrushed with an archival starch glue on the back side. The tissue paper is then trimmed to the precise size of the printing plate. Moistened before printing, the tissue stretches and then has to be recut to precisely fit the image area. Upon printing, the inked plate is set on the press, the sized tissue is put face down (glue side up) on the inked plate, and then the Durer Hahnemuhl is placed on the top of the Tissue. Upon running thru the press, the tissue paper is embossed into the Durer watercolor paper in perfect registration. It is considered one of the most beautiful ways to produce a photogravure print (as well as expensive and laborious) with a unique luminosity produced by the tissue overlaying the matt finished Durer paper.
It includes a hardbound and slipcased Book of 12 tribes of Native Americans with accompanying text including 44 duotone photographs and 26 oral history interviews, hand-signed and numbered.
