PORTFOLIOS OF PHOTOGRAVURES

A limited collector’s edition of hand-made prints accompany each release of Portfolio wines in celebration of both the art of winemaking and printmaking. They are impressions captured by Luc in his journeys throughout Asia that have been brought to life in the form of photogravures. The dust-grained photogravure process is an elaborate technique offering numerous interpretations of an original photo image through alterations to copper plates, hand-printed in continuous tone on the finest European and Asian papers. Luc’s striking images engage the viewer’s imagination, evoking numerous sensations, that also may be savored in the wines. The special wines, together with the collection of photogravures, are available only by direct mail.

These portfolios contain four dust-grained photogravures hand-pulled on the artist's press in Napa, California. Each portfolio cover and title page were made by Foolscap Press Bindery and Publishers in Santa Cruz, California. All rights reserved. No images herein can be reproduced in any form without the express permission of Luc Janssens. All prints, approved and signed by the artist, bear the seal of the studio.
