The Film Developing Cookbook
Pressestimmen 'The authors have compiled from sources ordinary and obscure a treasure-trove of information from the everyday to the experimental, all of it useful and interesting. Over the years following the first edition I have used this book as a guide for exploratory refinements to all processes in my darkroom. 60 new pages add new techniques, new formulas, and explanation of the mysteries of development.' Gordon Hutchings
, author, The Book of Pyro 'This book is the most essential piece of darkroom equipment. It contains many of the best formulae - and the most useful information - from the entire history of photography. I only wish it had been published 53 years ago when I first fell in love with the darkroom.' John Wimberley
