Collectors' edition adds to the Trade one a polymer photogravure pulled by hand, numbered and signed. This polymer photogravure has been realized by the ancient photomechanical process that transfers the photographic negative on a zinc plate, thus producing an incision in relief whence is printed the photo. The photogravure was pulled by hand in 30 copies on pure cotton paper Rosaspina Fabriano.
