Regarding the cost of the portfolio, a few people have already chipped in--many thanks to those who have. If you want to do so as well, just send me an email, and we can figure out the best method. A check from an Australian bank may cost me more to cash in the U.S. than it's worth, and a U.S bank draft may cost more in Australia than you want to send (but hey, you could always send the true international currency--8x10" sheets of Tri-X). Since transferring funds internationally can be complicated and expensive, and I really don't mind picking up most of the cost for the portfolio as my contribution to APUG, I'd like to keep it all voluntary.

On the camera issue--yeah, let's keep it separate. Maybe later we can change it, if we're inspired to do so. Nothing is written in stone.

On including extra unmounted prints--maybe. Let's see how much room there is. Another option might be to mount multiple small prints on one 11x14" board.

As to updates on the current location, I think Brian was planning to do that on the private portfolio page, but we could also do it in a thread on the forum.

One thing that was mentioned in the portfolio instructions was that there would be a form for including technical information on the back of the print. Since neither Brian nor Sean nor I have devised such a form, and I'm not sure we really need one, I would propose that contributors just include an information sheet with technical and background information, using the prints already in the portfolio as models.

David,
Where is the portfolio now? Has it started its trip around the world yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

It's still in New York, where the first three participants are located. My print is in. Aaron's is on the way to me, and I'm meeting up with Cem on Friday to look over the portfolio and get his print, and then it's off to the UK on Monday, if everything goes according to plan.

The portfolio is underway. I have Aaron's print (a still life on 1958 vintage Haloid paper!) as well as my own, and Cem and I are meeting up tomorrow before it goes off to Les in the U.K.

One suggestion for all participants--If you are sending a print that is unmatted or unmounted, be sure to include a glassine or acetate sleeve or a parchment interleaving sheet to protect the surface of the print. If you use an envelope, it shouldn't have a metal clasp, which could scratch other prints in the portfolio or leave an indentation in the matte of the next print in the stack.

That is great news David! I can't wait till it gets out to California.

It's in the mail. US Postal requirements required that I lock the portfolio, so I'll send Brian the combination, and he can post it on the private page for the portfolio. Les, I'll also mail you the combo directly, just in case it doesn't get up on the website before arriving in the UK.

This is to inform you that I'll be away from home between Monday Jan 27th and Monday Feb 10th. So if everyone ahead of me on the list is very quick, I'll slow it down...

No problem. Just get in touch with Les so that he knows your travel plans and can send it so that it arrives around the time you plan to be back.

I'll check with the postal service in the UK on how long it takes to get a package to you and post it accordingly.

Thanks, Les!

I'll definitely be back on the 10th, and I'll be reading email and keeping an eye on this group in the meantime. It's just that I'll be 400 km away from both my mailbox and my darkroom!

I have updated the list again. David also asked that I place the lock's combination number on the list so people have access to that now as well. I look forward to getting the portfolio. GREAT WORK GUYS!!!!

We'll now put the portfolio's current location in the title of this forum topic. Just PM or email brain, david, or myself to update the status. Thanks
