DEFINITIONAn image obtained after the use of a microtome. A microtome is a cutting tool to produce extremely thin slices of a material. These can then be photographed with eg a microscope. When creating microtome images of fabric, the fabric is normally first embedded in a transparent resin that is cured. The resulting rigid structure can then be cut with the microtome.
