Title: Re: Photogravure was: SPE and alt update
What is really neat is that people are actually using that article to make tissue for photogravure. Out of the blue I was contacted a few weeks ago by someone who took a workshop on gravure printing in Mexico and they made tissue following those instructions. This may lead to me giving a carbon printing workshop down there in the future.

Susan, Dick & Others,

I just picked up a copy of a book called Copper Plate Photogravure-Demystifying the Process and it looks very good.

I got a nice surprise when I looked at the last chapter on making your own tissue.  It is authored by non other than the real "King" of the list, Sandy King, not the "Dark King".  Also, all the photos are by our own Sam Wang.  Great job guys!  Congratulations!

Gotta run out and get some gelatin. 

Best Wishes,
Mark Nelson
