I certainly am going to post here more… but don’t hold your breath — I guess there will inevitably be a break now as I am writing a report about this little research of ours.

There will be posts coming about gum printing, bromoil, lith printing, and some silver plating after the turn of the year.

Thanks for visiting, and Happy Holidays!
