I am a photographer from Siberya,
I want to study the art of the photogravure.
It is quite impossible to find in Russia the etching press,
I already have spent a few months looking for the etching press,
and had found onle one model - 3650 FOME E/PRESS 52x100cm

I haven't find any information about this kind of press and examples of the artworks made on this press.
Please tell me if it is possible to make the intaglio on this kind of press.
I would love to buy the press for intaglio abroad, but the transport fees are very very high.
Please feel free to advice me on this question.
