The complete X-Tech Manual

These are all image files, reproducing the X-Tech Manual, a compendium of alternative photographic processes in use at the Photography Department of Columbia College, Chicago. These include Blueprint, Brownprint, Gumprint, plus the use of graphic arts film, use of the process camera, halftone production, basics of color separation, and a number of allied manipulations. Rather than look at all the image files, fee free to download a complete zip file by clicking [here].

Note: Kwikprint was discontinued by the manufacturer in 2000. The Kwikprint pages have been deleted from this site, although still part of the zip file.
