    Book on enlarging recommendation request

    I am looking for a book with detailed explanations of B&W printing processes (but if possibly without entering into pseudo-science and alchemy), preferable covering problematic (for me) cases of everyday practice, such as printing of low contrast negative to obtain contrast picture and so on.

    I have two books about enlarging: Michael Langford's "The Darkroom Handbook" and "Enlarging" by Jacobson and Mannheim, but both of them are sort of "opening horizons" books, i.e. briefly about everything and even more.

    --
    Thanks in advance,
    Evgeny.

    Check out "Way Beyond Monochrome" by Ralph Lambrecht and Chris Woodhouse (Fountain Press). It is the best book I've ever read on darkroom.

    Dear Evgeny,

    Consider adding "Post Exposure" to your library. It includes clear instructions for comparing variable contrast papers and basic unsharp masking.

    [QUOTE=ann] Black and white Photograhic Printing Workshop by Larry Bartlett and Jon Tarrant,


    I'd agree with Ann I rate this as one of the best books on printing that I've seen

    Tim Rudman's Master Printing Course is superb, and I understand it's readily available once more.

    Hi
    Another good book is ''The Master Printers workbook'' by Steve Macleod. And one of my all time favorites is ''Elements'' by Barry Thornton.
    Regards
    Steve.
