Printing Test Plates from Christopher Skinner
These are test pieces for the soft ground etching process. These are produced every so often to test the quality of the ground, strength of acid and exposure time in order to create the best printing plate. Then the plates are used to aid setting up the correct pressure between the rollers of the press, the receptiveness of the paper and quality of the printed line. These say so much more to me though.
