Sir John Herschel's traditional cyanotype process, now practiced for 166 years, became known as Blueprint, the first reprographic process. It is the oldest, simplest, safest, and cheapest alternative photographic process - but not the best in image quality! The drawbacks of the traditional cyanotype process were overcome in 1995 with this chemically up-dated version.
