    Parsons Paper Mill burnt down in June last year. Are you still using some local facility? Congratulations on getting this out. I look forward to the samples.

        A high end drum scanner could have scanner could have accomplished the same thing. Every high end production scanner I know of scans both reflective and transmissive originals. Most, especially later models, did insanely high resolution and enlargement as well.

        The big advantage using a high end camera like this is you don't need to mount the original to a drum. This is typically done with a release adhesive tape, and always amounts to some bit of damage to the original. It can be mounted by sandwiching it between the drum and a sheet of optically clear mylar, but this inevitably reduces the quality of the scan. There is also the chance to stretch the original while trying to get a tight mount. Very large or stiff originals are also quite difficult to mount, even with a mounting rig.

        Very cool job though Gerald, I'd love to see more photos of the printed pieces.

          The mounting for a high end drummer scan is critical. 35mm film
          works well particularly with gel, but 5 x 4 is typically too large to
          gel mount without a special mounting unit. I refer to the Tango drum
          scanner that we bought from Heidelberg, which comes with its own
          mounting station not entirely suitable for 5 x 4; anyone considering
          this as a solution should check.

            The two scanners I'm familar with were and older Screen, I forget the model now. It was the kind with no computer attached to it and imaged directly to film for the most part. Rows and rows of dials to adjust the color on the scan. The other was a monster Crossfield. The "big" drum on it could mount something in the size of 20 x 22 iirc. We did do some oil mounts on chromes larger than 4 x 6. Again I forget for what, I just remember it being a serious PIA, took two people, and that was with a NICE mounting station.

              Thanks. The publisher sent me the photo but I did not ask for more. Probably not too cool for me to do so. They have their own method for marketing this stuff. Sort of like the US Treasury with their special coins. I actually do that as well, except instead of a couple of weeks or so to buy the item I put mine up for eternity. Their way is much better but I have little choice in the matter (with my stuff) :—)

              At any rate, the right scans & negs, plates/base, ink, paper, and my sweetie pie of a press (with her new rollers); wasn't much else for me to do except crank her.
