    Ian;

    There is as much new work as old to cover, and the rest of the process is not covered well in existing books. I've said before that fixers, stops and the other solutions are useful material for incorporation into a book.

    Those are all in the pipeline much data already prepared, I did a lot of work on Toners for instance for commercial reasons back in the 70's & 80's and here again it's a case of not trying to re-write Tim Rudmans books but add something extra.

    Over the years I've done a lot of research and archived it away, countless Patents etc, and some very interesting developer formulae that need trying and testing, taht are unlike anything published in existing books.

    Some of the formulae I'm not so interested in now, that's the emulsion & alternative processes, but rather than let them go to waste sat on my PC (& on film or in books still) I'll pass them on to someone like Denise Ross rather than let them go to waste. There shouldn't be anything you haven't already got somewhere or other, but there's some Formulae for POP etc that she'd probably like to put on The Light Farm. Maybe someone like Kirk Keyes might like to transpose them to a text format first.

    Most of what I need is ready,,some needs editing, Gerald Koch & Tom Hoskinson were going to do the cross checking and validating, and add one or two I'd missed. Now it's really just a case of designing a good way of making the data available.

    Ian - I'd be happy to help where I can! I can certainly help convert them to text. My email is listed in my member info.

    No problem, thanks Kirk. They will be shared between Denise & Kirk so hopefully available to anyone else on APUG via their websites in a few weeks.

    Hello Ian,

    What is the title of your book? I'm quite interested. Sorry for bumping this thread. But the thread is quite fascinating and educational even for a novice like me.

    Bests,

    Hi Ashanque, the book project ran into some major hold ups as we had to move back to the UK to care for my mother, now I have to look after my wife. So at the moment progress is slow, in addition I was getting help from another member here who died 3-4 years ago.

    As an aside I came across a reference for the incorrect version of the Windisch Surface developer in a post WWII British Journal Photographic Almanac which called it an American version of the Windisch developer. It's possibly yet another of the large number of formulae published incorrectly in the Photo Lab Index.

    Ian, I wish your wife a quick recovery. Please take as long as you need. Family is more important than photo and photo-chemistry.

    I'll get back to this thread after reading it entirely.

    Bests,

    Best wishes to you and your family Ian. I hope that your wife and mother are doing well. I also hope that your book project moves ahead and if there is anything I can do to help just let me know. I'll do what I can.
