Let's Talk About… …Sun and Shadow - A Fundamental Update on Drawing Drop Shadow Transitions in PhotoshopWritten by Krisztián Vértes

The three-part article reflects on how Breasted came to establish the Epigraphic Survey and the Chicago House Method, utilizing new technologies to make epigraphic work possible, and setting the standard for the digital work of today.
