"Deposition approaches" ?

That is a new one for me. ( Maybe I slept through that class ?)

Is there some new manner of printing that makes use of phase transition - where a gas turns to some solid colorant which is impinged upon some substrate ?

Depositing multiple layers of ink jetted polymer or ink.

Great job Frank!

One slight correction, the book was actually published by the members of IEGA and was a joint effort by the association. Thank you for spending your time on this topic!

Thanks Frank !

- apparently i DID fall asleep in that class !

The technology to transfer a solid colorant as a gas to a substrate and create an image is called dye-diffusion thermal transfer; aka D2T2. Kodak as well as others use in to print photos in kiosks...

@Wayne L. Cook - as far as I know - that was what they "thought"was happening - but it was later shown to be untrue.

but, this is really pointless, as i think the entire point Frank of the video was about this wonderful traditional / conventional Engraving book.
