This new edition has been completely revised and heavily expanded, adding over 250 pages to the original edition with new chapters on print mounting, spotting, framing, digital negatives, utilizing digital technologies for alternative processes, and fabulous do-it-yourself projects. Overall, the authors have created a thoroughly researched, technologically sound yet aesthetically pleasing, inspirational bible for monochrome photography.

    The book is a real achievement, almost an encyclopaedic reference. I got inundated with the sheer technical content it's brimming with. In my view, the book is itself a complete photography course.
