The term 'intaglio' applies to any method of printing where the inked area has been dug out or incised into the plate material, either directly with a sharp instrument (engraving) or by a chemical process (etching). Many of the traditional methods involve the use of harmful chemicals and this comprehensive and inspiringly illustrated book advises on the safest working methods as well as exploring the many technical and creative possibilities.
