    Tim Rudman's books are excellent. I have all of them and re-read them and refer to them all the time. I have other books, but they dont get looked at anything like as often.

    Thanks, I've purchased most of titles you mentioned, including Les's and HH's books. Rudman seems to be pretty scarce on both ebay and amazon. Had some luck, however, hope all the books will get here in two-three week time.

    I'll second any of Tim Rudman's books and Les McLean's is a must have. Also John Blakemore's book, Black & White Photography Workshop, is great.

    For practical information and an inspired approach to the aesthetics of interpreting negatives, few books can match Larry Bartlett's Black& White Photographic Printing Workshop. It's a must have for beginner and expert alike.

    Is the Les McLean title people are referring to _Creative Black & White Photography_, or is there something else more specifically on printing?

    The book I got is "Creative Black & White Photography". It is good but not as good as I expected.

    I read the Adams trilogy once. But since I discovered Tim Rudman's and the Lamprecht/Woodhouse book I referred to them a hundred of times.

    This discussion has answered the same question for me. I found the McLean book for $.75 and $4 shipping on ebay and the Rudman book used for $19 + $4 shipping!

    Late to this thread, I know, but the OP seemed to be new to the game. I would recommend a really basic and easy-to-understand book like Mastering Black-and-White Photography: From Camera to Darkroom by Bernhard Suess. Lots of relevant, solid facts, that cover much of what most people need to know to get a solid foundation.
