Mammoth prints are produced from Edward Curtis original photogravures. They are printed in an oversized format of 60 x 40″, using pigment-based inks on special mould-made, fiber-based, acid-free watercolor paper.
Drawing on our archive of over three thousand original Curtis photographs we have chosen to create a very select group of the most iconic and sought after images in a “Mammoth” format. We use an ultra-high resolution scan made from an original Edward Curtis photograph. Prior to scanning, each vintage photograph chosen for this project was professionally conserved to restore the print to its original appearance. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, the image is then optimized for printing. We use pigment-based inks to ensure archival stability. The image is printed onto Saunders Waterford, a 100% cotton watercolor paper, produced in Wells, England at St. Cuthbert’s Mill.
