This is a strange one. There is information within that's useful, there are links to other sources to expand on the subjects, but .. and this is a big BUT for me ... the whole thing is an utter mess. Once you get to reading on a specific technique, you're gonna hunt around several pages to make any sense out of it. Nothing is organized to help you return to the few words you're going to need to refresh memory. In this respect this is one of the worst books of the kind I have seen. Ultimately it is a show down of techniques intertwined with messy and extremely un-technical layout that has a good chance of driving people away from the content. It reads like o novel, somewhat documentary and (naturally) historical in nature, but it is not a GUIDE in any sense. Again, there IS information to help you with the techniques, but published in a horrid format for the task.

Also, but this is purely personal, I don't buy the "oldy" look to the pages, it also distracts me from the content.
...
Having spent more time with the book I'll first reiterate the 2 star rating, I don't believe I'll ever consider going up from this.

Secondly, book is hard to read due to small type and colored page background. This along with "novel" style concept it is difficult to follow.

Thirdly, there are only handful of images of relatively large size, one on the cover, second in the "ceramic" section, and one in front of each chapter. The rest is tiny (many match box size) and most are ho-hum level. This reminds me of many alternative technique followers for whom getting an image (ANY image) is already art in the making. If you want to see anything to inspire you, you'll need to find it elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book about how to do old photographic printing processes such as cyanotype, kallitype, platinum prints and too many others to name. This book may not look not huge in terms of cover size, but it has a lot of pages and covers everything you will need in a lot of detail. I believe another reviewer has said it is disorganised, but I am surprised by that comment - it seems orderly to me. I would say the writing style expects the reader to settle in and read it - it is not just concise bullet points, more of a "tome" - but if you are prepared to devote time to reading, you will find this a truly excellent book.
Perhaps your choice, dear purchaser, is whether to buy this or "The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes" by Christopher James. The James book is quite staggeringly massive, and even more detailed - the definitive "bible". It demands even more attention span. The two books are actually quite similar in terms of writing style and coverage, it's just that the James book has even more of everything. However it is almost three times the price. So if you want everything you need at a reasonable price, this Jill Enfield one is the one to get. But if you want the ultimate lengthy detail and are prepared to read it - and are prepared to spend the money - the James book is the one. They are both excellent so you can't really go wrong.
