This gorgeous website is described as a "comprehensive resource dedicated to the photogravure", and its aim is to showcase the beauty and craftsmanship involved in the photographic process of photogravure. The "History" tab, found on the menu across the top of the page, provides visitors with a very thorough history "of the relationship between the evolution of photogravure, and the art of photography." Visitors should not miss the stunning Alfred Stieglitz photogravure called A "Venetian Canal", under the "Examples" tab. More Stieglitz gravures can be found in the "Explore" link that appears in front of the silhouette of the tree branches on the homepage. When visitors scroll over the branches on the right side, they will see the "Start" link to browse the searchable database. Searching under Stieglitz in the artist drop down box will take visitors to several dozen of his works, each one more arresting than the last. The gravures "New York Central Yard", "Hands, Dorothy Norman I", and "The Swimming Lesson", should not be missed.
