The ori­gin of black­print edi­tion comes from the founders desire to show the orig­i­nal antique pho­tographs on glass from 1860 to 1910 from their own pri­vate col­lec­tion. Keep­ing always in mind an artis­tic approach to print­ing and in this case an anachro­nis­tic too, through the use of for­mats and papers that did not exist at the time.

We print the Lim­it­ed Edi­tions on very select­ed and rare art paper from Switzer­land to Japan. Each copie is num­bered and comes with a certificate.

We choose our sub­jects on terms of qual­i­ty and unique­ness. Each of our antique glass plates is print­ed with the least dig­i­tal cor­rec­tions main­tain­ing traces of age phys­i­cal­ly and chemically.

The whole process up to the final edi­tion avail­able online is car­ried out and print­ed by black­print. From the acqui­si­tion of the orig­i­nal plate, the research,  the dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion in very high qual­i­ty, the choice of the tonal­i­ty and the paper, as well as the pack­ag­ing and some­times the frame design.

In Novem­ber 2018 black­print edi­tion has launched its col­lab­o­ra­tions with inter­na­tion­al con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phers and emerg­ing artists called “artist edi­tion”.

Each final art­work choosen by black­print edi­tion has been devel­oped exclu­sive­ly with the artist. It can often takes sev­er­al months, som­times years, between tests, research and mod­i­fi­ca­tions before it finds its way to art lovers and collectors.
