Re: Jose Ortiz-Echague and Fresson

When the Fresson family
ceased commercial distribution of the paper they
provided him with the technical knowledge to coat
his own paper, and he constructed a coating
machine and thereafter called his process
"carbondir" (carbon directo) so as not to offend
the Fressons.

Why would, do you think, the Fresson family share their secrets with him and yet not with anyone else since then?

I notice they still do Sheila Metzner's work as well as Deborah Turbeville's...
