Thanks for the sources. I guess I'll be ordering materials sometime soon to get going on my first try.

Andy, Post-Factory #8 [The World-Journal of Post-Factory Photography] has
an article by John Dugdale and his assistant, Dan Levin, who learned
albumen printing from the classic sources (Reilly, et al) while adapting
it to contemporary materials (commercial eggwhites, for example). If
you're in the US, the issue is $6, plus postage $2 -- for elsewhere, the
United States Post Office has turned obnoxious as the only mail now is
airmail which... if memory serves, the last single issue I mailed (to
England) was, incredibly, $9.

PS: If you have a friend who has this issue, I encourage you to ask them
to copy the article & mail.

PPS. It's titled "Albumen Liberation" since Dan found that some of the
traditional agonies could be omitted (tho some couldn't).
