About the anthotype notebook

The anthotype photographic process is easy to start but requires plenty of experimentation to master. Each plant or pigment creates a unique emulsion with varying quality, contrast and exposure time. This notebook will help you keep track of your experiments and evolve your process.

This notebook contains pre-defined pages with enough room to document 50 anthotypes, starting with the name of the plant or pigment and continuing with the process of collecting pigments, making an emulsion, coating the substrate and keeping track of exposure times and season. There is also room to reflect on the result and document what may improve the final print.

From Malin Fabbri

This notebook was simply born out of my own need to document and learn from my process. While researching the anthotype process and looking for emulsions I wanted to find an easier way to document my findings to be able to share my research on different anthotype emulsions. I hope it can help others too.
