He then had them printed on multicolored stained paper with a three-dimensional element to create a kaleidoscopic and technical tour-de-force. Moby Dick Domes, whose plates were inked in vibrant colors, is dramatically different from the dark tonalities and stark dramas of Moby Dick Engravings. The two elements in Moby Dick Domes were a flat plate and a shaped dome plate fitted into a circular cutout. Both sections were fitted with an assembly of etched magnesium plates. Tyler adapted a hydraulic platen press to accommodate the domed shape. One great technical challenge was the tension of the shaped paper where it met the flat paper. Although handmade paper is basically a waterleaf paper with a great deal of flexibility, that is, without sizing, there is great stress put on the paper in changing its shape from flat to dome."
