Collotype (also known as albertype after its inventor) involves transferring the image to a gelatine coated
glass surface using UV light to harden and transfer tones at different light sensitivities. The advantage
of this over common printers (digital) was that the ink would not be applied in dotted groupings but rather
create a smoother overall look due to be a layer of ink pressed, there by being truer to the original. Now a
days this technique is becoming less widely used due to the time required printing with this method, however prints
using this technique may be considered of high quality.

Should you wish to explore the area in France that Sir William spent so much of his time this holiday house in the Dordogne see here can provide
a beautiful experience for those who enjoy the countryside and the many towns and villages of great character.
