The Prints and the Pauper

William Ahearn will help you learn the process for ID-ing what sort of print you have. Almost all of us have found a print in a relative's attic or at a yard sale only to wonder later whether or not it is of any value. In this interesting and informative class you will work with Bill's extensive collection and find the best way to solve the mystery of your print. Bring a magnifying glass or loupe and a five dollar bill with you to class. You don't even have to spend the $5.
