Sorry Jack, Because of the phrasing I might have
given the impression that I believed an emulsion was screened onto paper in the
Fresson/ DC process.
This implication was not intended but on
pondering on it I suppose an emulsion may be applied this way. From what you've
seen of DC prints, if they were similar to the work of Echague, at least, I
would also not think that screening was used.
Glad you' re still around.

Sometimes I follow these threads all the way through . . the
Fresson process and Luis Nadeau, from who, I've not heard much from of recent
years, are of interest for the process is lovely. Now, John, you are implying
the process is silkscreen????
I've seen a
few prints and they were on a rather thin paper . . somewhat rich in color but
a wee bit low contrast. Could've been whomever' work it was . . but, I
never thought them to be silkscreened.

I happen to know a subsriber to this list who has regular phone calls from
