My understanding is that Autotype in the UK is still making carbon 
tissue for photogravure. Sorry, I don't have a source at this time.

Do you have a copy of Davis Morrish and Mrlene MaccCallum's Copper 
Plate Gravure, Focal Press 2003. There is an article in there by me 
about making carbon tissue for photogravure, as well as list of 
sources. I have some additional ideas now about making it even better 
in case  your student decides to try.
