Raised Impression

Raised Impression

 

(also called Congreve impression after the English inventor W. Congreve, 1772–1828), the relief images created on the binding of a book with a hot stamp and with a relief counterstamp from the reverse side. The process is used to reproduce a portrait of the book’s author or various emblems, such as crests, letters, and numbers. The impression is sometimes combined with a colored image.
