An intaglio test print from a couple of weeks ago done at Iowa City Press Co-op for a book project I'm working on -- the plates are engraved vinyl floor tiles from Restore and the paper is handmade in my basement. The floor tiles are dark grey, and it's hard to tell how much plate tone there is when you think you're done wiping the plate.
The narration that goes with the images will be letterpressed.

Letterpressed cover page (and the letterpressed boxes that will house these comics are drying at the shop), intaglio printed pages on handmade paper, edition of 30. I'll probabbly hand color some with watercolors and acrylic.
The plates I used to print these at the Iowa City Press Co-op are a very hard plastic. I found a "carpet protector" one of those things office chairs roll around on, at a local thrift store, and cut it up into roughly 4 x 6 inch panels, and beveled them with a belt sander.
