Michael Dickey has sent the following message which may well be of interest to some of the members-
"I am using the computer to make screened images of my photographic collages using a very neat piece of software (Andromeda #3screens) that is capable of producing 300 line random halftones which can be output to film. Have been working with Keith Howard's image on intaglio method for a few months. Find the possibilities very exciting. I would like to credit Rossilind Harrison for her article "photoshop for photoetch" on the Printworks Magazine home page." For more info contact Michael Dickey, I.M.S. at

The T N Lawrence and Son Ltd has a beautiful store located in London specializing in printmaking paraphernalia, etc. plus some interesting books, magazines and papers. Also, they have an exquisite online catalogue. As you can see from his letter below, Martin Lawrence is looking to our I.M.S. members for feedback. I hope some of us can assist him.

Copy of letter from Martin Lawrence:

Thanks for all your recent information. I wonder whether any I.M.S. member can help us? We want to buy a mezzotint rocking machine and we are making enquiries about a machine supplied by Sakura of Japan. Has anyone used this particular machine and if so, what do they think of it? Are there any alternative machines around?

Best wishes
