Making it in Vermont: Cone Editions Press Revolutionizes Fine Photography Printing
Tuesday, February 4, 2020
When the descendants of Seattle-based photographer Edward S. Curtis decided to create prints from glass negatives of Curtis’ work, they got in touch with a Vermont fine art and photographic printer that has gained renown for its advances in printing techniques.
Cone Editions Press turns out super high-resolution digital prints on a variety of devices from an unassuming shop that looks like a barn. The company lists

among its clients celebrities like David Bowie and the painter Wolf Kahn, and institutions like National Geographic and Lincoln Center.
But what really interests founder Jon Cone, 62, is the technology he and his colleagues have developed since the company started serving artists in New York in 1980.
