The prints are distinctive for their finely etched lines, deep bevelled plate marks and harmonious relationship of the asymmetric plate to the full sheet of paper. [sculptural in concept].

After careful washing to remove soluble staining, the print paper was stabilised with a light de-acidification treatment on the verso.

The print was pressed between paper makers felts.

Special  ‘step- cut’ blotter templates  were  placed verso and recto  to accommodate the three dimensionality of the paper and keep the incisive sculptural quality of the plate mark.
