April 5th is our 5th birthday!

This site is now 5 years old. 5 years ago we started out as Cyanotypes.com. Some of you that have been with us since the start, some of you are more recent members and visitors. However long you've been using the site, we're glad you keep supporting us and contribute to make the site a hub for Alternative Processes.

To celebrate our birthday and revive old memories we're doing a Cyanotype special in this newsletter.
