Adams' trilogy as well as his "Examples..." are a must have on any photographer's shelf. ... Anything by Tim Rudman is of value whether one of the Master Series or learning Lith printing. ... Les McLean "Creative Black & White Photography" is especially good on split-grade printing. ... My favorite, though, is Barry Thornton's "Edge of Darkness" because he comes across as such a humane individual (our loss when he died early).
I have the above and agree with the statements made.
