Wow. The list is so quiet.

My posts didn't seem to have shown up, so maybe there are still hiccups.

Anyhow, let me see if anyone might like to respond, in case this  
message does reach the list: in publications, how do you like to show  
your alt work? That is, other than accuracy of colors etc, how do you  
treat the paper outside of the image area? Would you crop it all out  
or would you leave a faint paper color and texture?

I know it's something to be determined on a case by case basis, but is  
there a general feeling that for hand coated alt processes, only the  
coated area is important, or how about the way the coated area sits on  
the paper surface? The question can be important especially when the  
highlights are more of the color of the paper itself, and when the  
paper is not very white to begin with.

How about some discussions?
