Re: gravure


My understanding is that Autotype in the UK is still making carbon tissue for photogravure. Sorry, I don't have a source at this time.

Do you have a copy of Davis Morrish and Mrlene MaccCallum's Copper Plate Gravure, Focal Press 2003. There is an article in there by me about making carbon tissue for photogravure, as well as list of sources. I have some additional ideas now about making it even better in case your student decides to try.

I have a student who is going to try photogravures on copper plates. She
said she needs a tissue (carbon?) to expose for transfer to the plate. She
is having trouble locating this material. Anyone know where she can get this
or can it be made from other materials? I am trying to help as much as
possible unfortunately I have never done this process.
