ENGRAVING: Printing pictures from a wood, stone, or metal surface is an art form created in the 15th century that was extensively used to mass-produce original works of art. (Also known as a PRINT). Until the advent of modern photography the method was used to mass-produce original drawings and paintings to illustrate books. Artists, cartographers and publishers, at one time, employed hundreds of master engravers to illustrate books, maps, commentaries, and newspapers. There are two methods, Line engraving and drypoint. There are three different processes; Etching, Mezzotint, and Aquatint. Mezzotint is the process that was developed in the 18th century which is still used to produce high quality images such as all United Stated paper currency eg., the dollar bill.
