Latent Image KIPP

(from German kippen – to tilt)

An image which consists of parallel lines that are perpendicular to the lines of the background. The latent image KIPP is applied using the intaglio printing plate and appears as an achromatic image in sliding light at an acute angle of observation. It can be visible due to the shadows cast by the raised lines of surface relief. When the document is rotated by 90° without changing the angle of observation, the latent image KIPP becomes either light, or dark compared to the background color.
