The original catalogues chronicle the development of printing technology. For example, the 1927 and 1928 six-page centerfolds are noteworthy, not only for their dramatic black color backgrounds, but for the printing technology and quality control necessary to produce a large solid black area accompanied by sharp and clear details. The clay-coated printing paper used in these books (both in the originals and in our reproductions) is a semi-absorbent material. Images retain their sharpness and clarity because most of the ink sits on top of the paper fibers, and the small dots composing the images retain their shape. When you use heavy ink coverage to produce solid color backgrounds, the amount of ink absorbed substantially increases. Paper fibers absorbing the ink's moisture expand. With heavy ink coverage paper tends to wrinkle and press jams occur much more frequently. This increase in technical difficulties is well known by printers. Printers, then and now, charge a premium for heavy ink coverage because of the printing problems that it creates. Obviously, by 1927, technical improvements permitted the extraordinary ink coverage for the first time.
