What is a wash/line french bound mount?
This special, handmade mounting is a combination of traditional English and French techniques.
The lines and wash are drawn/painted around the mount to compliment and balance
the colours in the picture, much care and subtlety is needed to create a good
wash/line mount.
Each mount is individually made for each particular picture.

French binding

The french binding is the inset deeper mount...
usually covered with a linen finish to compliment the colour in the picture.

What is The fine art trade guild stamp?
The FATG is an independant body that monitor the publication of certain titles,
making sure that the work is copyrighted and that the printing plates are destroyed,
and that no other publications of the image exist as a limited edition.

They also ensured that the inks used in the publishing are upto a certain standard
and are light fast (as much as the technology allowed at the time of publishing)
Also that the paper used was of good quality, and acid free
The maximum size of a limited edition was 850
An embossed stamp was placed on the print, with three letters that would correspond to the particular print number in that edition
A signed limited edition would be stamped bottom left just off the image, an unsigned, limited edition would be stamped just under the image in the middle
