"Sorry no, can't remember the details, only being impressed!  I guess, since then, they have both got much busier workwise so may not have been able to explore much further.  Tapioca!  Fascinating.  I;ll look forward to…"

"It might be worth contacting Bertrand Lavedrine (lavedrin@mnhn.fr) & Jean-Paul Gandolfo (jp.gandolfo@ens-louis-lumiere.fr) who wrote the book on Autochrormes &, I am sure, may have more unpublished material. Much of the research for their…"

"Peter, Thanks. I am not familiar with Mons. Lavedrine but I will check out his work. I have worked with the Getty and Art Kaplan and Dusan Stulik, before he retired. It's exciting to see folks like yourself, the Getty, and the Ransom Center in…"

"Hi Dick, You might be interested in the work of Bernard Lavedrine who works for the Getty. He did a book about it where a lot of info comes from. He mentions a guy called Frederic Mocellin (I may have that wrong) but the method he used was coating…"

"Dear Peter, I suspect you have gone further than anyone else in the modern era in pursuit of the illusive wisp. Your comments about this being an "industrial' process is on target, I like that approach. You appear to be in possession of…"

"Dear Richard, Thank you for your comments and questions as well as the link to your Colour bibliography. The Lumieres did indeed keep the process secret obviously to lead in the market of colour photography. The way the starch grains were applied…"

"After a second look I see what looks like a dark spot on the top of each, what looks o be spherical, grain. If the grains are spherical, or were to begin with, it seems unlikely they all landed with the dark spot up. Highly unlikely! So, we have to…"

"This is my link to the color section in my database of early photography https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uus7dl25bti94q9/AACmDOPh32qBSQmeMeI4JQXBa?dl=0 As best as I have been able to determine, the Lumier's never patented the process and kept it as…"

"Not overly happy with my results. So failed partly in patience, partly not being brave enough to fume mercury, and partly for not being wealthy enough to buy silver plates.... and I forgot about all that polishing. Collodion on the other hand is a…"

"Hi World Image Trader, thank you for your kind encouragement. I ve tried the Collodian process before as I believe all techniques overlap in their general application and are therefore good to learn. You say you failed at Daguerreotypes ? How so as…"

World Image Trader commented on Peter Norman's blog post The Autochrome Project
"Hi Peter: Very interested in finding out how you get on with this. I have sent the news to a couple of people who are keen on autochromes. Wishing you the very best of luck from a failed daguerreotypist and keen collodion producer."

Hi Peter,

I was the Curator of the RPS until 2001 when the RPS Collection was sold to the National Media Museum in Bradford.  It is now at the V&A so much easier for you to see.  I saw an early prototype of Bertrand & Jean-Paul's recreated Autochrome in Paris some years ago but, alas, not recently.
