Note on Japanese Tissue prints…
I was first inspired to pursue photogravure when privileged during the early 1980’s to handle some of Edward S. Curtis’ original large Japanese Gampi tissue photogravures. (I am using a virtually identical paper; a 15GSM 100% Gampi tissue.) Curtis’ tissue prints were “as is”, that is to say, not glued or dry mounted, but just tipped-in. Tipping-in describes the attachment of a print to a larger piece of heavier paper, often the page of a book, by using a small amount of archival wheat paste on just the corners of the tissue, outside the image area. This is non-destructive and is completely reversible with just a tiny amount of water.
Just as Curtis’ tissue prints are somewhat wrinkled due to the pull of the ink on the very, VERY thin paper, so are mine. I liked the look in Curtis’ prints and prefer it for mine, too. Some have suggested I use a process called Chine Collé, which involves using the aforementioned wheat paste on the entire rear surface of the tissue at the time the print is put through the etching press. This makes the print and mounts it, at one and the same time. I have found it takes away from the ethereal look and feel of the print and therefore have opted to keep the wrinkles. If you don’t care for the wrinkle aspect, order the printmaking paper image instead. These are also quite beautiful in their own right.
