Etched in memory.    Photogravure etchings make a special impression through their unique depth, texture, and tonality. With their hand-made papers or Japanese washi, richly pigmented inks, and artisanal technique, photogravure etchings provide an unparalleled visual experience. Surprisingly simple in appearance, they are the product of the 500-year European intaglio copperplate etching tradition, and, in my workshop at The Kamakura Print Collection, a millennium of Asian influences. An extraordinary discovery awaits your exploration. When you are ready to move from the virtual images at this site to original prints for wherever you are, please ask any question about them or simply order some (it's easy).

In Inklings, learn how photogravure etching emerged from the 600-year intaglio tradition and how it influenced the other graphic arts. The story involves developments in optics, light-sensitive materials, and etching coalescing during the 19th-century Age of Exploration, giving rise to a new medium expressing the aspirations of its time and ours.
