Inventions of Photography – Chapter Nine - The Woodburytype

A note from the filmmakers:

The woodburytype process was the most challenging to demonstrate as the machines used in the process have all but disappeared. For the purposes of the demonstration, Mark Osterman was able to create a facsimile of this fascinating process. The woodburytype’s ability to combine photography and the press created an increase in the production of the printed image in publications.
