Inspiring stuff, and anyone interested in the wet plate process could do a lot worse than buy the Quinn Jacobson book `Chemical Pictures`. On buying it you also get access to videos demonstrating the individual parts of the process and more. I bought it recently and although it was pricey it was worth every penny, and Quinn himself has been very helpful and encouraging.

I heard about the technology. Indeed, cool! Few photographers possess the technique.

This book -- never mind the obvious worthiness of the cause -- is a fitting tribute to Frederick Scott Archer.
