Digital scans of the Whitworth's impression of Melencolia I were digitally re-worked by a bank note engraver and then used to laser engrave a replica plate. 

The new plate is the closest study of Dürer’s engraving technique and offers a rare contemporary replica of this famous work.

The first edition of impressions have been hand-printed on 16th-century paper. The scarce supply of the antique paper determined the limited number that could be made.
