Newsletter April 2006


Finally spring!

We have been working hard to put together an exhibition that will feature the cyanotypes from the showcase. It will be on show in Orebro, Sweden from the 1st of April. So, we've had no time to add new artists this month, but here is something to bite into... this month we are adding the description to two processes, woodbury process / woodburytype and the ziatype. Enjoy.


The woodbury type / woodbury process by Nicolai Klimaszewski is an interesting take on carving. Read and learn.

The Ziatype process is an extract from Christina Z. Anderssons book Alternative Processes Condensed. The article here has been illustrated by Carl Weese's beautiful prints.
