A Comprehensive Resource Dedicated to the Photogravure.

Peeling back a layer of the history of photography, this site examines the role that photogravure has played in shaping our shared visual experience.

Through exploring thousands of examples, we learn about the relentless and ambitious 19th century pursuit to reproduce photographs in permanent ink and discover the exquisite, sublime process that resulted.

It is our hope that this site firmly establishes photogravure as not only one of the most under-recognized light-based printing processes, but also an important and beautiful art.

Thank you for your interest.
