    Looking for a book with print maps

    Any books published showing how master printers build up a final print, writing about technique as it applies to their best prints? I've read things like Adam's The Print, but I think it would have been good for him to show what went in to making 5 or 10 or his best prints from start to finish, starting from a straight print. I've seen some great blog posts that do this, now looking for something more book length.

    I was thinking about picking up this: http://www.amazon.com/Examples-The-M...=IMNC0HVTRZ6RQ

    ...for the very reasons you mentioned. Maybe someone who has read that particular book can weigh in on how much detail Adams goes into on the printing aspect.

    That is a great book, but it is more descriptive rather than visual. If you want physical diagrams of how a print is made, showing print "maps" then this is not the right book, but if you want description in words then it should be ideal.

    I'm worried that book might focus much more on image capture rather than the print process.

    The ones that I can remember (although my memory is a bit shot after all these years) are The Master Printer's Workbook, Way Beyond Monochrome and Darkroom I & II. Darkroom I & II are out of print but I oft times see them at the usual places on the web; it was published by Lustrum Press. The others are available on Amazon. Hope that this helps. Cheers! Sam

    Now that you mention that I think you're right.

    oh and I almost forgot - Variable Contrast Printing had some I think. My memory says that the Master Printer's Workbook was the best tho. Cheers, sam
