FACTS & HISTORY:
Intaglio printing is the opposite of relief printing, in that the printing is done from ink that is below the surface of the plate. The design is cut, scratched, or etched into the printing surface or plate, which can be copper, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, plastics, or even coated paper.
Intaglio engraving, as a method of making prints, was invented in Germany by the 1430s. Engraving had been used by goldsmiths to decorate metalwork since ancient times. It has been suggested that goldsmiths began to print impressions of their work to record the design.
