    Hey all,

    I discovered this stacking culture last year while doing my research paper for a bachelor of visual arts degree. My art practice is photography and my interests lie with the materiality of analogue processes, which of course involve silver.
    When I completed my paper I rewarded myself by buying a 1oz XAG intrinsic tender bar from perthbullion.com, I was quite compelled by the correlation between the way stackers see value in having something tangible as opposed to paper money and the value I see in having a sheet of film with silver bromide that is physically changed though exposure to light rather than just an image that is a string of code. ...Next thing I knew I was looking at the kg bars ;)

    So anyway, that is me. I don't know anything about silver bars or rounds, but I know a great deal about 19th century photography and a little about the european alchemists of the early modern period so if you are interested in that, I'd love to hear from you.

    Awesome Ginkaku!

    I suspect Carte de Visites would have been quite popular in Japan...

    Welcome.

    That is one way of finding yourself on the Silver / Gold path.

    Enjoy the journey and take lots of pics.
