Intaglio & Relief Printing

George Baxter combined both Intaglio and Relief printing processes to produce his patented process prints. Intaglio on the key plates and relief for the colour blocks/plates.

Intaglio

The printing process in which engraved or etched metal plates are used. The principle of this process is that the line of the image is created by the incision or groove made in the plate.

Relief

The printing process which is the reverse of Intaglio. The surface from which the print is to be taken stands in relief from the rest of the block.
