Each plate is protected by a descriptive tissue guard providing information regarding that plate (title, artist, size, medium, ownership). Image areas vary. The color plates have generally have an image area of 15 inches high by 6+ inches wide. The black and white collotype plates generally have a similar, or larger, size image area.
