Re: Solnhofen quarrying pattern

> However, nobody is digging, and there is not just one quarry.

Apparently there aren't enough artists left to create a demand for the
lithographic limestone.  :-(

Eh -- wait. _All_ quarries are active. There are lots of uses other than lithography: roof tiles, floor tiles (with beautiful dendrites), wall tiles... Sorry, I just tried to say that "digging" is not the right word because it's not underground. The layers are horizontal. The quarries are shallow pits in the landscape.
