    I received e mail from Dick Arentz this week---the book is published and he will deliver signed copies in about 2 weeks...check his web site listed in this thread. His workshops are excellent-his prints are stunning, inspirational and humbling. I have his first edition and am getting the 2nd. Anyone interested in platinum should take one of his workshops in Flagstaff Az. During the workshop his prints available to you for viewing----

    Merry Christmas to all and Dick good luck with the book.

    According to Dick's website the following contributors wrote special sections:

    Pyro and Platinum Printing by Bob Herbst
    Crafting Digital Negatives by Mark Nelson
    Ultraviolet Light Sources by Sandy King
    Custom Platinum Printing by Stan Klimek

    I'm interested in hearing what folks think also. Especially if there's enough new stuff from since the 1st ed. to justify having both.

    I was with Bob Herbst yesterday (Jan. 16) at a Friends of Photography meeting. He had just received his copy. One would guess that the chapter authors would receive first.

    Hey everyone, I have the book and it is great. I've read about half so far and it's well laid out and has excellent examples. It makes me want to start palladium printing NOW! If only it were that easy. Unfortunatly I didn't see Michaels suggestion until today. I would have loved a signed copy and to see Dick Arentz get his fair share. Speaking of Michael M. I'm glad to see he has a cameo in the book. Anyway any questions feel free to ask. This book is worth every penny.

    So they decided to include that tidbit on how to clear black spots? It's a doozie because it results in the production of chlorene gas, so you have to be very careful with the mixtures, but it works wonderfully to eliminate a black fleck or two from a print.

    I don't know how many prints I could have saved if I had figured out that procedure earlier.

    Well you will save a lot of prints for all of the newcomers and probably some old timers too.

    Anyone who is thinking about getting the book but just isn't sure. I recommend it. It's an excellent reference.

    Got my copy from Dick yesterday. The first chapter I read was Stan Klimek's chapter in the Appendix.

    Michael's discovery was announced by Dana Sullivan on the Bostick & Sullivan Web Board last year, I'm glad he got due credit in Dick's book.

    Being able to look at fine palladium prints at APIS ('01 and '03) was a real treat. Getting to look at Michael's work (as well as many others) was a lot of fun. I'll probably miss this year's APIS (sob) but I would reccomend to anyone that is interested in ALT printing to try and attend. You won't be disappointed.
