Re: George Eastman House grant
Thanks Steve, and all, for your comments,
You know after I return I'll be blabbing all the stuff I came across.
I've been organizing all my books/articles I have to date since hearing about the grant (almost 100 sources) and came across a whole book on the egg white gum print. Wow. So many things to sidetrack me.
Do you know that in this book get this: he combines his dichromate, formalin, and sizing in one step, and then paints on the pigmented gum with no dichromate as a second layer. How weird is that?? But I am finding that a lot of the juicy morsels are from the German turn of the century texts. Whole discussions devoted to who is right about how halftones are created! Goodness.

Chris, MSU placed the money well. Your art and talent is earning deserved appreciation. Steve --- "Christina Z.

It is such a wonderful feeling when your university believes in what you are doing! Especially since I am in the arts and not in the field of science, where the usual funding money flows to (MSU reached the 100 million mark this year). Since I teach a full load next semester, Tom and I will probably fly in there the first week of January, if all goes according to plan. Is there anyone on the list who lives there/any alt group who will be having a meeting there at that time? I know this is doubtful, right after the holidays, but it'd be great to get together an alt list group! Daytime I will be busy at the library, but it closes at 5:00. I figured since RIT is in the area, there have got to be some great photo things going on. And I assume Toronto is close by? Close by Montana standards, anyway--maybe 3 hours? I don't know if a rental car can be taken across the border, though. One more question: anyone on the list doing/wanting to do German translation, could you email me **offlist**? My translator had a baby. Chris PS My husband doesn't quite put this trip into the "wonderful vacation" category--no palm trees, more snow there than in MT but we're not skiing, etc.etc. heheheh--I think I'll bill it as a "retreat".
