    I wondered if one (or more) of you would mind discussing what you like about Way Beyond Monochrome. It was my understanding that a lot of the book covers digital and photoshop manipulation as opposed to traditional film work.

    I don't know who led you to believe that a lot of the book covers digital and photoshop maniupluation., but i think that is incorrect.
    With almost 300 pages, digtial is discussed within 4 pages.

    The book is more advanced than just a basic beginners book, which may or maynot suit your style. There is quite a bit of technical knowledge , which i like; however, if you don't care for this type of infomration, I would suggest you pass ; however, if you do enjoy the more technical aspects of photography it is a great reference book .

    Can 2nd the vote for both Bruce Barnbaums (look for a 1st edition it has prints in it) and for Rudmans - The Photographers Master Printing Course. Still have to pick Les's book and the Way Beyond MonoChrome book.

    Nick,

    Rudman´s book "The Photographer's Master Printing Course" is back in print since August 2004 (in China, as many photo books are today) - "reviving" the market and lowering the prices of used issues.

    Ari,

    I´d recommend Larry Bartlett & Jon Rudman, "Larry Bartlett's Black and White Photographic Printing Workshop". Got it at the Photokina at the Hove Books stand for 25EUR after lusting for it for weeks.

    Bartlett was not only a good printer (no photographer!), he knew how to teach it - there is a special and useful scheme in the book.

    One page shows the result, one the plain print and the steps to achieve the result, explaining all the tricks in text and images.
    Tschüss,
    Roman

    In addition to ones already mentioned, I found quite a few interesting techniques and ideas in "Creative Elements: Landscape Photography-Darkroom Techniques"

    Sadly missed. I believe he printed for David Bailey.

    Elements of Black & White Photography by George Todd is similar to Adams Examples book. He uses the making of 20 B&W prints to explain various aspects of photography & darkroom techniques.

    My understanding is neither of those.
