The Woodburytype is a 19th century photomechanical printing method, producing high-quality continuous-tone images that use a suspension of carbon black in gelatine as a relief print, in which the variation in height of the print produces the grayscal...

The Woodburytype is a 19th century photomechanical technique, producing high-quality continuous-tone prints that use a mixture of pigment and gelatine as a relief print, in which the variation in height of the print produces the tone and contrast. We... Read More about The optical properties of the Woodburytype - An alternative printing technique based on a gelatine/pigment matrix.
