Velox Revisited

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a little piece of graphic arts history, a tribute to Velox. Velox processing paper, used for making prints from negatives, was a familiar friend to photographers and production artists until the mid-80s. The book’s cover is a tin from my grandfather’s amateur photography legacy. It holds its own book of colors and notes he made for color referencing. The accordion book includes a brief biography of Velox’s inventor, a few diagrams and explanations for its use, and a sample negative and print from my graphic arts treasure chest.
