Advanced printing process: The printing of this book utilizes a revolutionary new color reproduction technique called Chroma Centric™, which is eight times more precise than standard offset printing. To meet the demands of high-density printing, this process uses stochastic screening and specially formulated inks, enhancing the color gamut by more than 25 percent. With this technique, Insight Editions is creating perhaps the most stunning color photography book of its kind.
