The full sheet size for the photogravures is 30cm x 24.5cm, with the plate sizes varying.

 Photogravure is an intaglio printmaking or photo-mechanical process where a copper plate is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin tissue which had been exposed to a film positive, and then etched, resulting in a high quality intaglio print that can reproduce the detail and continuous tones of a photograph. It is no longer commonly practiced.
