    Darkroom by Wynn Bullock

    Anyone have this, or read it?

    I'm extremely curious, especially since George Tice is in it. I'm wondering to what extent his materials/procedures are covered. I've read reviews that say this is a detailed and excellent book giving you an inside look at how several darkroom practitioners work. But not sure if it's worth buying an old copy or something.

    Thanks
    Michael

    Each photographer has a very detailed description of their work process. Tice's mostly is about platinum, but also 1/2 page on his silver printing. It's worth it to get a used copy to read about the photographers' processes.

    Both "Darkroom" and Darkroom2" by Lustrum Press are excellent. Their entire series of books (at least those I've been able to find: 7) are very helpful.
