The Woodburytype process was invented by Walter B. Woodbury and patented in 1864. It was the first successful photomechanical process fully able to reproduce the delicate continuous tone of photographs. It produced true middle values and did not make use of a screen or other image deconstruction method. As there is no weft it is almost impossible to distinguish the woodburytype from the original photograph. It was often considered the most perfect, most beautiful photomechanical process and inspired a number of books, magazines, and special edition printings between 1864 and 1910.
