Re: The Woodburytype and Stannotype Processes

Hajicek and collotype at Arizona State:

I worked with Jim in the late 70's on the Woodburytype process, however I am not certain if it is still an active pursuit.
He is still at ASU and surely has all the research stored and easily tapped, if not active.

Hope this is useful.

From memory, (was this already said?) there is a Woodburytype press at
Arizona State University, correct?  Isn't it a guy named James Hajicek
there?  I thought that they got the press for free if they would actually
set it up and use it, and they built a special room for it.  But this is
from memory years ago.
