T I N   T Y P E S LIMITED EDITION OF FIVE  Amongst many of Bill’s talents is that his an award winning photographer, having extensively exhibited here in Australia and overseas in America. When his not printing our letterpress stationery, he loves to pursue antiquarian photography which he teaches here at Hill End Press. These images were inspired by the ins and outs of our garden and exhibited at Dubbo Western Plains Cultural Centre NSW in 2013 These are known as 8 x 10 (that’s inches) tin types or traditional wet collodian. Bill uses his trusty vintage camera to take these unique images. It’s an old style beauty of a camera made from brass, timber and canvas. The plates that these images are made on are coated with a protective varnish made up of lavender oil and gum sandarac which makes them robust but one still must take care. They are such a thing of beauty that is handmade and unique.
