At this point what I can say is that the book should weigh in at 2.31 kg and what I have weighs 1.75 kg (also hard copy). Time will tell what comes of it. I cannot return due my whereabouts, but will continue following on this as it is getting interesting. However, this book has always been the best on the subject and arguably most thorough. What I have kills its content due to low quality photos, without which the book is almost useless and certainly not worth the price I paid.
I left 5 stars on it, because I am convinced the book is at the top of the list on the subject and can't wait to see what had happened to its printing.
UPDATE: Today (10/03/2015) I was informed by Focal that a new PROPER copy will be delivered directly to my home address. This would have never happened, had it not been for one of the authors standing behind this quality publication and following up on an otherwise absurd issue. Credit to Focal for acknowledging the problem and acting in good faith to fix it, as one would expect. The printing issue seems to have been an isolated incident and while I cannot confirm it, I would think the POD version I had unfortunately received, will no longer be available.
Just to clear this issue I did indeed receive the proper copy shortly after my last update above, so all is well and huge plus to Chris for his support in resolving this case swiftly.
The book is most suitable for persons who already have a good working practical knowledge of film and print making, or students of photography who need an authoritative text that can be relied on for integrity.
I have been experimenting and learning, reading all the books I can on the subject, old and new. And photographing a lot.
So I thought I knew something already.
But, upon start reading this book I realized I knew nothing at all. Because this is a full theoretical book but at the same time a very practical one. You learn by analyzing subjects in depth with technical graphs, and then apply it with easy to use techniques I have seen nowhere else. Awesome!
Then I love that DIY stuff. Your lab workflow will never be the same again, for sure. A joy to build and use.
And if you want to know something about moving your silver work to digital, there is something about it too.
I recommend this book to all of you out there willing to learn how to make true photography, from start to end!
