    Platinum & Palladium Printing By Dick Arentz

    Many here probably know of this book. I received my copy today and I cannot recommend it enough! So often I find books like this are either too basic or too single mindedly pushing the author's way of doing things. Dick Arentz does a great job of presenting pl/pd printing in a very clear balanced manner; not skimping on the technical details but not bogged down by them either. The appendices are great and provide a wealth of info.

    As a bonus there are many beautiful images that remind one why one would want to print in this process!

    I met Dick at an APIS conference in Santa Fe several years ago. He was VERY generous with his time and let me go through a couple of his portfolios (white gloves of course), ask questions and get some informal instruction.

    Dick Arentz is my benchmark for pt/pd printing, and the style and ideas behind his photography ring very clear with me.

    Anything Dick writes is worth reading. If you are fortunate enough to hear him speak in person, count yourself lucky.

    I have that book, but it's been in storage for a while...been looking for it in earnest lately.

    After having read Arentz' book, I realized I'm not there yet. Hoping to catch a workshop or may try B&S' book which I understand is more accessible.

    What did you find inaccessable about it?
