Re: Why did Nadeau bug Echague re the Fresson secrets??

Whatever Nadeau had or did with it only he knows.

The Fresson family has been using the process for over 100 years.  I have had 
multiple prints run by them and though slight differences can be seen (as 
with any alt process) the images look repeatable.  Their process is not pesky 
or fiddly or they wouldn't be able to operate successfully.
