Product description


This book takes the reader step-by-step through the techniques necessary to use the gum bichromate printing process. The use of gum bichromate, an historical printing process that gives delicate colour to prints, peaked at the turn of the century. In recent years, however, its popularity has grown as photographers have rediscovered not only how flexible the process is, but how its potentials in colour and image manipulation inspire their own creativity. Based on the historic method, this book is written in contemporary terms using currently available materials. The reader will achieve success without further reading or support.
