A History of the Woodburytype
by Barret Oliver
Publisher's Description
Aesthetically beautiful, permanent and infinitely reproducible, the Woodburytype was the first process used extensively to photographically illustrate books. This is the first book on the topic. Oliver’s research into the Woodburytype grew out of an extensive working knowledge of early photographic technology and his successful experiments in reproducing Woodburytype prints.

Olivers thoroughly researched history explains how the Woodburytype process works, why it was used for such a short time, and why it eventually disappeared in spite of its being called by photo historian J. S. Mertle “the most beautiful photographic reproduction process ever invented.”
