Amazing Engraving

December 2, 2009

We just acquired P.J. Pound’s The Drawing Room Portrait Gallery of Eminent Personages, 1859, second volume. If you want to see amazing engraving, Pound’s the guy. You can view an example of it, super close-up which shows the various lines, dots and dashes used to illustrate light/shadow/modeling here.
