    Judging by my last trip to Borders, they won't put a book on the Photography shelf without that word in the title.

    Be fair folks: Tim Rudman has published more for us chemical junkies over the years than any other author. One chapter in one book ain't gonna kill anybody...

    Yeah, I thought the Agfa rules were very fair: doesn't even have to be Agfa film or paper!

    Cheers, Bob.

    Sorry, my first thought was why would I go through the motions of becoming a master lith printer and enter my pictures next to ink jet prints?

    Does he at least give you a copy of the book, if you are included?

    Thanks for the posting Sean. I'm not a lith printer myself but I have read some of Tim's writings on the subject and find it a fascinating area. Some day I'd like to try it. In the meantime, it's great to have access to a site where an author you have read and admire asks for entries.
