color_sample_setIn the age of digital, PMG attempts to gather analog printing processes while we still can.  Most printing practitioners using analog have long-since closed their doors, but a few remain and are willing to help us in our endeavor.  Photograph conservators care for collections with many photographic processes that are now extinct.  The 20th century saw many wonderful photographic inventions and also the dawn of the color photograph.  The set will include 17 processes including color and black & white prints and also the most popular negative and transparency films.
