Format: Paperback
This book is a must for anyone interested in using liquid emulsion. In addition to being very practical and easy to read it also manages to be inspiring - showing great real life examples of how the material has been used. I've printed on ceramics, cloth and different papers and found the book really helped with preparing each project. Reading it I could visualise everything first and picture what I'd need, what problems I might encounter and how best to avoid them. The troubleshooting section is invaluable in the darkroom, too. Silver Gelatin is excellent throughout - accurate, friendly and inspiring.

This book is made for those, like me, who think a photograph doesn't have to be a flat piece of paper. it shows you how to customise your materials, use different objects, and it gives you the guide lines to use your imagination and produce wonderful works of art. it is also filled with marvelous images that made me feel really jealous!! this book has helped me develop my skills and put "to paper" what I had in mind for quite some time!!

I really liked the information in the book, but it does have a strange way of conveying information with interviews of artists. The book is also show much more examples of artists than I wished to see. Basically I wanted a Manual and got a magazine. Still worth the purchase to help perfect your skills at Silver gelatin.

Great book on using liquid emulsions 14 Jun 2013
By eatlocal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I find this to be a very thorough book on using silver gelatin/liquid emulsions. It covers everything from coating papers, fabrics, or other materials for photo printing, as well as making glass negatives. There is also info on various toning methods, a troubleshooting section, and a formulary with recipes for everything from developers, fixers, stop baths, and toners. It also tells you how to make your own emulsions if you prefer that over buying ready-made emulsions.

There are also a lot of nice images of creative applications in the book to help inspire you.
The perfect book - small letter size. 2 Dec 2012
By Egill Ibsen Óskarsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this book, but the letter size is a bit small, especially under images, for reading. I would give 5 stars if the letter size would have been bigger.
