    Hello All,

    I apologize if this as been repeated, but I would like to know the proper definition of a traditional Carbon Print. I am not referring to the digital carbon inkjet. Also I was wondering if I can get a link to a photography terms and definition website.

    Thank you for you time and help.

    [I don't think this is another Scarpitti alias, Bruce].

    This is a good description with links and more detail--

    Here's an article by none other than Andrew "Dagor77" Glover on the Carbon Process, with links to descriptions of many other historic processes--

    There's also some good info over at bostick-sullivan.com on various alternative processes.

    I'm sure Sandy King has a scholarly bibliography at hand on the subject.
