    Ann, I have long espoused this as one of the best B&W printing books as it shows you exactly what someone has done with each image as opposed to talking about a bunch of techniques with no examples. It has a special place on my bookshelf.

    In addition to this book I recommend our own Les McLean's book for printing and general B&W photography.

    Way Beyond Monochrome may be delving more into the sensitometric side than you seem to be looking for, based on your first post.

    I have all 3 books above and can say that they are all worth having.

    The two that I use and regularly dip into are

    Tim Rudmans Master Printing Course, which is excellent and was my bible until
    Ralph lambrecht and Chris came along with Way beyond monochrome. Very, Very, in depth technical book.

    Well, I'm not really happy with "Way Beyond Monochrome" and "Creative BW" by Les. If I'd choose one book from these two, I'd take only "Way..." because it contains much more interesting me information, too scientific though, on my taste. But Les' book is also worth to have in library.

    Anyway, I'd give last chance to Larry Bartlett and Tim Rudman books, since I order blindly from Amazon without possibility to check suitability of books in local bookstores due to complete absence of such literature there, and I cannot afford to spend so much money (especially ordering from Amazon UK, the only place where the last mentioned books are available for me).
    Best regards,

    I'm a little surprised no mention is made of Saint Ansel's very own The Print
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    David Vestal

    The Art of Black and White Enlarging by David Vestal-probably out of print but an excellant book. There are many fine used dealers on the web.

    Thanks Peter,
    I've heard a lot about this book, it is out of print long time already, still available used, but shipment from dealers costs near to a mini-yacht cost.
