I happened to be reading John Updike's "The
Poorhouse Fair" when the "why alt process"
thread erupted. In the book, an antique dealer
comes to the fair to buy a lady's hand-made
rugs. He had discovered that

"... in this age there existed a hungry market
for anything ... savoring of an older America.
There was a keen subversive need, at least in
the cities, for objects that showed the trace of
a hand, whether in an irregular seam, the
crescent cuts of a chisel, or the dents of a
forge hammer."

That pretty well sums it up for me.
