This Moria print was created by using a steel etching needle to scrape into a plexiglas plate. After the etching was complete, ink was smeared onto the plate to fill the relief areas. Once inked, a cloth was used to wipe ink away from the negative areas. The prepared plate was then attached to a soaked piece of textured paper and sent through a printing press. Voilà! We have Moria, or Khazad-dûm - The Dwarrowdelf - where for thousands of years the Longbeards dwelt. It is here that the Dwarves, delving ever deeper in their search for Mithril unearthed a Balrog of Morgoth, later known as Durin’s Bane.
