    Especially since they are free, meaning out of copyright and published online for public use. A concept unheard of only 30 years ago.

    All these are very readable and have great basic principles that we will all need as we reinvent historical processes.

    I mean, we have another thread where a fellow is proposing to design and make affordable low production LF lenses. That was simply not done in the recent past.

    Others are teaching how to make emulsions and create DIY film, dry plates, papers.

    We are gaining the ability to continue historical processes for some time to come.

    Thank you!
