Sneak Peak--What I've been Working On

I've been working on an edition for the past 6 months or so. It's been a great project with interesting challenges. I'm finishing it up this week!! Here are some pictures that show a tiny snippet of the process. There are approximately 70 nickel-plated photogravure plates which go into individual hardcover book-like structures which I created and built. These shots show one of the metal plates being glued up and placed into the "book". Opposite the plate sits the exquisite photogravure print which came from the plate itself. I'll post more shots of this project soon. Thanks for looking!
