about John Coffer, part two

I am ten days away from a big BIG event in my life. John Coffer’s wet plate workshop. in addition to workshop attendance, his fee includes  a detailed (hand written!!) manual that can guide you through every step of the way of making plates. the first few pages of the manual include a “dedications” section that I want to share on here. it is very cute, and I can only image how much I would love my dear sweet horse if she helped me carry my darkroom across the country for years.
