    Recommendations Please.

    Like to learn a little more about photographic process, especially the photos developers and lens design(Optics).

    Any recommended books?

    There is also the Ilford Manual.

    There's been various versions. I have a very large single book version from the 1960's, it was split into two in alter editions and there was also an abridged desktop edition and a smaller Pictorial Enclyclopedia of Photography.

    They are all excellent, the two book version contains more detail particularly with regard to applied photography (outside normal uses). Even the desktop version is wort getting as it's still packed with plenty of information. I have 3 the Pictorial, Desktop and full their in storage so I'm not sure what dates.

    The contributors were the worlds leading experts of their day. For analog use the older version are the best. Any 60's -80's will be OK but 1980 would be more up to date for colour work.
