TYPOGRAPHIC RETIN - EXAMPLE 1 ( last uploaded )

HISTORY OF PRINTING Photograph of a smiling girl eating an apple, reproduced with a typographic net with a structure of concentric circles centered on the fruit: the net allows to render to the line (reduce to just white or black tones, without shades) a continuous tone image (with infinite shades of gray); in this way the image can be printed in ink, and the eye still perceives the illusion of halftones. Different structures can give the same image a different character; this is part of an example series, made by comparing some of the finest graphic screens inspired by manual historical engraving (see # 42861 to # 42866). Photoengraving, Italy, early seventies of the twentieth century
