[PhotoHistory] History of the Woodburytype (fwd)

[forwarded from the History of Photography List]

OK guys, here's something amazingly real and documented. I don't myself understand it perfectly, but I remember a lot of interest in Woodburytype on this list and have seen some stunning examples.... I also have Carl Mautz's catalog and a couple of his books. They're terrific. .

Subject: [PhotoHistory] History of the Woodburytype

A few months ago I announced the publication of the first modern book
on Walter Woodbury and his remarkable invention of the woodburytype
process on this list. Reception of the book has been encouraging,
particularly in Great Britain, Woodbury's native land, but also
Holland and Australia, both of which have historical connection to
Woodbury, the photographer.

The author of the book is Barret Oliver, a young man who lives in the
Los Angeles area and makes his living as photo printer specializing
in 19th century processes. Recently, Barret has printed a small
number of original woodburytypes to tip into copies of the book, so
we could offer a collector's edition of the book. The edition is
limited to 25 copies and 3 artist's proofs. We have sold 9 copies so
far. The tipped in woodburytype is made from an image of the New
Church Cathedral, Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. See the following URL for
my web catalogue entry -

I'm not a member of the alt.processes list, so I'm hoping someone who is a participant in both lists will volunteer to pass this message on. Any other ideas on getting this book to the attention of people of interest would be most appreciated. As you can imagine, this is a very narrow niche.
