the photographic process mentioned above was invented more than 150 years ago and is a process that, in the simplest sense, transfers pigments from a carrier to, for example, a paper.
Carbon transfer is one of the most noble printing processes.
Even though the name suggests it, and even though some digital photographers call the output on inkjet printers the same, what is described here has nothing in common with it.
Carbon transfer printing, when done in a disciplined and correct manner, produces images of unimagined beauty. These images, if the conditions are right, are highly lightfast, show contrasts and sharpness that cannot be achieved conventionally, an extensive tonal range, offering a relief of the image when viewed, which makes them appear almost three-dimensional.
And: every single print is unique.
In its simplest form, printing is done with black pigments, but with these pigments alone, the variations are limitless.
The highest consecration is the multiple transfer with pigments of different colors which, if you want it, create color images of a very unique impression.

I will try to present the complex process in a simplified way to keep it on one hand and on the other hand to give every user the possibility to try it at least once.
Who knows, maybe the spark will fly?
