Own a little bit of photographic history printed in a much higher state of fidelity than was available “back in the day”.

The Piezography Archives is intended to serve two purposes. First, it allows institutions and collectors an opportunity to purchase examples of the Piezography process. The Piezography process is an invention that will certainly be included in the history of Photography as the bridge between analogue black & white photography and the ongoing digital color revolution in which black & white photography is being replaced by a subset of color inkjet reproduction.

The second purpose will allow institutions and collectors an opportunity to own and display historical photographs that they might not otherwise have access to.

The cost of these prints is the same as the cost of making a custom print at Cone Editions Press of your own work. The costs are only moderately higher than our online printing costs.

We will be adding new prints on a regular basis. You can get notifications with our feedburner RSS feed, or by pasting http://feeds.feedburner.com/PiezopressNewPrints  into your favorite RSS reader.
