Printers used chemicals to "etch" the image of the original glass plate into copper plates. The etched portions were then filled with ink to create a print. Details of the original image were often lost in the process.plain2016-06-03T15:13:26-07:00Christine Turkb279a3dcf419860f915007f04f08e6fc0f8662ce
