  • engraving
  • etching
  • printing

6.27.3.2 If none of the terms in the RDA vocabulary are appropriate, record another suitable term from a standardized vocabulary (such as the printing and printing processes and techniques hierarchy of the Art & Architecture Thesaurus Online) and indicate its source.

Example:
Production method: Intaglio printing
Source code of term: aat
(Comment: Example includes the MARC source code of term for clarity)

6.27.3.3 When multiple techniques or processes are identified in a manifestation, record as many terms as appropriate, with the predominant one, if any, first.

Example:
aquatint
etching
(Comment: Print done in aquatint with some etching)
