    Oh! I forgot, Vaughn's carbon printing manual!!! smiley face here.

    When Paul Strand was dying he mumbled "all my books", then he was history. For silver printing the book to keep is the little Zone IV manual by Fred Picker. It's an excellent book that cuts though the technical information that the excellent Ansel Adams book series have. I have the early edition of AA and the last edition of the series too for an intense complete read.

    For picture books, portfolios, the Brett Weston series is totally outstanding, to view them completely you need to have a magnifying glass, the printing is that good. Those who have them know what I mean.

    The Photographer's Master Printing Course by Tim Rudman. I learned more about printing from that book than 2 years of darkroom classes and many failed attempts in trying to deal with St. Ansel. Actually, it's a toss up between that and the toning and lith books, but since I have to choose only one, that would be it.

    (In fact, I had to face this kind of scenario in moving to Japan -- photo books, whether technical or coffeebook, are generally pretty heavy, and it was hard to choose which few would cross the Pacific with me, and which would stay behind.)

    May I keep AA's trilogy ?

    In fact, I think it would be "Way Beyond Monochrome", all the information I need about the darkroom work and some more.
