What's an etching? It's a complicated process involving scribing a metal plate and submerging it in acid. The resulting impressions are far more richly detailed than modern printing methods yield. The prints are made one at a time; the wet paper is pressed onto the metal plate using a roller press and air-dried in a special rack. Because the process is so labor-intensive, etchings are typically more expensive than prints produced by other means. There's an interesting video of the process here
