  9. Re: A questionnaire pertaining to analog zine dreams

    I like the idea of a book of contact prints. What I'm gleaning from all this is that it's definitely not a mass production process. Sort of a one and done deal unless I want to use all that paper to...

    Thanks Paul. Some of these documents I have scrolled through and I can't seem to find my specific shutter. Am I missing something? Are the design of these shutters more universal than I think?
