    Cool book! (Although here, we refer to them as "alternative" photographic processes.) ;) But granted, they evolved over time as photography expanded. Those of us still practicing these processes tend to think about photography in terms of "arts & sciences," as opposed to "arts & technology," where it comfortably rests today. If you tend to be drawn to tactile processes, playing with chemistry and getting your hands dirty, then this stuff is definitely for you.

    I have a CanoScan 5000F, I checked the driver website and apparently they never made linux drivers :/. I've only ever made bootable linux disks, is it possible to get copies of Windows XP for free? There are drivers for that but it looks like after Vista the scanner was no longer supported. I tried running in compatibility mode, no dice.

    I'll be going home for spring break in about a week, I'll bring back one of my old iMac G3s with me and get the scanner set up on that I think.

    Got some more scanned properly just now.

    I have bought b&w chemicals and paper. My plan from now on is to make paper negatives in camera and then contact print onto cyanotype paper. I also bought transparency film so if I want to make larger 8x10 prints instead of 4x5 I can.
