“A scratchboard is similar to a word engraving like GUSTAVE DORE illustration or steel engraving like ALBRECHT DURER. The only difference is that it is an original and reproductions can not be made as with a steel engraving or wood engraving. The detail is probably finer than the steel or wood. On a white board coated with white clay, the surface is coated with black ink and with a very sharp point the drawing is engraved. Then I varnish the finishing drawing and it becomes very durable without glass”
-Eyvind Earle, 1999
