I don't know of any books on matting per se. I will make you an offer thou. When you are ready to learn how to mat and drymount call me and we will arrange for a time and you can come down to the darkroom and I will give you some lessons and you can use the darkrooms equipment. Contact me off list and I will give you the phone #. Dry mounting is a problem right now as we still don't have electricity there yet but with in the month it should be available.
