Really happy to support your project William - sounds both fascinating and important. Love the cyanotype pic you just posted on instagram ('Solar alignment') but I'm sure your other works are lovely too. Rachael

Lucky dip from the archives!

Some small but original hand-printed (i.e not digital) work from the archives. It could be anything but likely things would be a small cyanotype, or 7x5" landscape print, or cameraless photograph. Whatever, it will be nice and realistically worth more than 20 quid. You can email me with your preferences but no guarantees - it's a lucky dip!
