I have been taking paper prints of the engraved metal plates since my college years. Engraving on jewelry is a slightly different process than engraving for printing purposes: the same tools are used but they are sharpened differently.
The prints on this page are taken from hand engraved copper plates. (By clicking on a print you will see both: the print on paper and the engraved copper plate).
