    I like the photos! They tell a story in their own.

    I think I would split up the layout of the titles and the author's name. I would do it like this:

    PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSIONS (all in caps, on a line by themself. Use a larger font for this line, and justify it across the top of the book.)

    Making, Coating, Testing (all on the second line. Perhaps in caps too for consistency, but I think I would put them in italics, and at a smaller font than the first line of the title.)

    (Then the 3 photos just as you have them.)

    R. G. Mowrey (Mix of caps and lower case. Right Justified. Note the omission of "by".)

    Note I changed the title of your book slightly - from "PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSION" to "PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSIONS". I think it reads better, especially when the title is split up as I propose.

    Spruce up the cover. I'm sure there are quite a few peeps on here good with design, I'm not bad myself either. Look at other books for inspiration?

    Perhaps draw some styling from 18th/19th century books even..

    Looks VERY nice! Nice to have a real introduction to the subject in cover picture. This is rarely seen, but works like a charm in this case. Goes 1:1 with the title.

    Hi Ron,
    How come the top picture is bathed in green light? A magenta sensitive emulsion, with no blue or green sensitivity?

    Bill;

    The top photo, as all stills and video taken "for real and in the dark" was done with IR light which is rendered in green by the sensor in my videocam.

    Ron,
    For the purpose of the book, could you change the green cast to red? I really don't mean to nit pick. But the green cast looks very out of place.

    Bill;

    The green cast is throughout the book and the DVDs due to the nature of the videography. Sorry.

    I guess that shows me that you cannot please everyone. Maybe I'll end up pleasing no one.

    Ron,
    No big deal. I only hope that your readers don't equip their darkrooms with green safe lights, then try to make an ortho emulsion.

    Not dead - just not as much free time as before...

    I think Ron's book would be far beyond such people, and that a remedial high school science book would first be more helpful.
