Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Amazon reviews for the Second Edition:

"Well loved and dog-eared...this book has been flipped through many times, it holds many wonderful ideas and continues to inspire me in this digital age we live in!"

"The Darkroom Bible...this book is an absolute must-have for the experienced printer who wants to step up to the next level. The wealth of information he provides, from technical to historical, is extremely interesting, albeit a bit dizzying at times. However, the book can be used as a reference as needed for information on specific chemicals, formulas, or resources for supplies and equipment. Of all the books that I have read on printing, this is the one that has been most useful."

"Excellent reference for both shooters and photo scientists...Mr. Anchell has complied an excellent book for both people becoming interested in developing their own film and those who want to know more about the chemistry of photographic processing chemicals... I used this book as a reference in a college level photographic chemistry class and I found it invaluable."
Booknews
