    ... that I couldn't even remember I was the "project owner" of this group. :smile:

    Is anyone still doing lith printing these days?

    And if so, I guess we have to clear up the rules and get a sticky thread on that. Keep me posted.

    I still lith print and might be interested in being part of the exchange. I don't consider myself to be great at it, though, and I don't do it often enough.

    I was thinking about organizing a new round of Lith Exchange and had contacted Jervan about it.
    My basic idea: a chain, everybody sending one print, can be a blind exchange or open, as participants desire.

    Cycle: 1 month recess & signup, two months for printing and sending

    Minimum requirement: one 18x24 cms / 8x10 inches analogue lith print or equivalent (in the BPX, there was a question whether a set of miniatures would do, that is what I am referring to as equivalent), everything else like de-spotting, mounting, matting etc. is optional

    Exclusion: no inkjet print, but hybrid process is fine, of course.

    Assignment: No particular, but if anybody is interested, we could discuss it?

    I was also thinking about a joint Lith & Alt Exchange. I am aware that “Alt” needs some definition, but I was thinking about any hand coated substrate printed on permanently (i.e. fixed. I do appreciate e.g. unfixed salt prints, but in this context, they are simply not practical). I was thinking along the general lines: salt / albumen / handcoated emulsion/ Plantinum etc./ Carbon etc. / Orotone / Cyanotype / similar processes. Hybrid process is fine, but the final print should not be inkjet.

    Would you be interested in that, what do you think?

    Dear Bernd, I very value your initiative revitalizing Lith print exchange. I find your proposal of the rules fine. Probably we are a small group and some of us (like me) don't have a huge amount of experience with that technique. It is ok if we have to produce and send only one print per round. But it should be the real thing: Therefore the lower limit of 18x24 is ok. Most probably, I would print larger.

    I hope that there is enough interest for such a exchange. It would be a fine idea if we encourage the participants to show the prints here.
