    Well I ordered a copy of Coming into Focus off of half.com ($12.24 after shipping who can say no) so we'll see how that one treats me I'll probably pick up Christopher James' book at a later time.

    Hi, A very good book not yet mentioned is Spirits of Salts, by Randall Webb & Martin Reed. Available from Silverprint in the UK. Martin Reed is the proprietor of Silverprint as well. An eclectic mix of photographs as well as a good technical manual.

    So far I have to say I'm happy with picking up Coming into Focus. It's a step up from just a technical manual.

    Go to the local library and ask them to Inter-library loan any book that you wish to review before buying. The library is a wealth of information, yet few people use what they have to offer. The library should be able to get just about any book out there that is not overly rare. I use them all the time for just this purpose and it has saved me a great deal of money.

    You might also want to check out this book that I posted about before here on APUG. Although it isn't a cookbook for Alternative Process, this book by William E.Leyshon does cover a lot of the historic photographic processes and may be a nice introduction to it all...

    PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE 19th CENTURY: A process identification guide
    Author:William E.Leyshon

    You can find a link to a downloadable PDF of the entire book in the Links section of APUG here:

    "The nineteenth century began by believing that what was reasonable was true, and it wound up by believing that what it saw a photograph of, was true." - William M. Ivins Jr.

    "I don't know, maybe we should disinvent color, and we could just shoot Black & White." - David Burnett in 1978

    "Analog is chemistry + physics, digital is physics + math, which ones did you like most?"
