Trial Proofs for the Accordion Print Project, etching and aquatint on Hahnemühle paper, six sheets: each approximately 4 x 12″. These pages will eventually be linked horizontally. Upper left is Page 1, lower right is Page 12.
New Print Project Part 7
Proofs for the Accordion Print Project have been returned to me from Center Street Studio. They look excellent. Selections from a few of the 12 pages are included below and an overview of the sheets is shown above. I wrote notes on those proofs indicating to printer Jim Stroud where ink should be wiped selectively from the plates to bring out highlights. Those proofs with notes, seen as details below, were returned to Jim. After another proofing session, Jim has refined the printing a sent me a set of proofs (above) that have been torn out and folded in the configurations that will eventually be linked to form the print. Janine Wong is constructing a case that will hold the assembled volume. That will be available soon for review. After looking at the proofs for a few days in the studio, I have decided that the plate work is complete. Our aim is to have an assembled set of final edition prints available for review at the fine art book fair that Jim will be traveling to in late October. (To be continued).
