The Albumen Website, put together by art and photograph conservators Timothy Vitale, Paul Messier, and Walter Henry (also known as the Web master for CoOL, Conservation Online), presents the art, history, and science of albumen photographs. The gallery features digital images of albumen prints from several institutions, including the Monterey Museum of Art, Library of Congress, and George Eastman House. In the library, users can read books, including the full text of James Reilly's The Albumen & Salted Paper Book: The history and practice of photographic printing, 1840-1895, and dozens of articles, both nineteenth-century and contemporary, on technical aspects of albumen photography. In the video section, clips show Doug Munson of Chicago Albumen Works preparing albumen coating from egg whites and applying it to paper for prints. In short, the Albumen site should satisfy the entire range of interests in albumen prints, from simply wanting to look at them all the way to wanting to create them.
