Edward Steichen (1879-1973). Photogravure, originally included in the Early Years Portfolio, Edition 920/1000. Published by Aperture.
Some of Edward Steichen’s richest and most profound photographs were made between 1900 and 1927. It is from this period that Steichen selected his masterpieces and asked Aperture to publish his prints as hand-pulled-photogravures–the finest of all methods of reproduction. The twelve hand-pulled dust-grain photogravures in this Portfolio were printed by the master printer Jon Goodman.
