12201019070?profile=originalIn 1864, Walter Woodbury patented a photo-mechanical printing process which effectively allowed carbon prints to be mass produced. Many consider that this was the definitive process developed to produce permanent photographs.

Peter McCallion is completing his PhD documenting how he has reprised the process at the University of the West of England’s Fine Print Research Centre. Peter will explain the process’s history and his research. He will demonstrate the final stage in the process: the printing/pressing of an actual Woodburytype. This is a very rare opportunity to see a demonstration of this process.

The associated blueprint-II exhibition includes a modern carbon print comparison with an 1870s vintage Woodburytype print.
