I have noticed in the description of a couple different gallery ads for someone displaying cibachrome prints that they are mounted on "anode aluminum".

I imagine that anode is a less utilitarian sounding term then anodized, but is there some specific quality or advantage to mounting to aluminum?

Anyone know how the prints are attached? Adhiesive, taped corners etc?

I also remeber either Avedon or Penn had a series of platinum prints that were mounted to aluminum. Anyone know which one?

Thanks for the replies in advance.
