About phototype technique:
Phototype is the highest quality printing process ever, with only three phototype printshops left in the world today. The colour image is broken down into up to 25 colours and then printed on top of each other in as many print cycles. The finished image achieved a colour quality that was almost comparable to that of an oil image.
This technique was mainly used for illustrating books or prints in small editions. It makes possible to achieve prints of incredibly high original fidelity.
