Parchment Diploma

1909; Engraving with manuscript ink on parchment
 

The parchment was carefully humidified to unfold flaps along the edges and then stretch dried to reduce distortions.  This process was repeated a number of times until the parchment was relatively flat.  It was edge mounted with Japanese paper to matboard and then framed.
