This book is aimed at both the newcomer to monochrome photography and to the more experienced printer who wants to produce fine images using traditional and current printing techniques.
The authors begin by explaining various methods to produce a perfect negative before going on to describe some of the many beautiful and varied processes, that were developed and used during the last century, but still have enormous relevance to today's monochrome photographer. They examine the different methods of using light sensitive material, including the earliest photographic processes, and many other traditional techniques such as gum bichromate, which are gaining favor with many contemporary photographers. They also explain new innovations in film and paper technology including split-toning and split-grading on variable contrast papers.
Some of the subjects discussed: Negative, fine black & white print, liquid photographic emulsions, toning and split-toning, alternative printing processes, salt printing, cyanotype process, kallitype process, argyrotype process, platinum/palladium printing, gum bichromate process, hand tinting, printing out papers, airbrushing, lith printing.

Worobiec and Spence approach the subject of printing photographs as fine art. Similar in format to Randall Webb and Martin Reed's Alternative Photographic Processes (LJ 4/1/01), their book provides detailed information, including formulas for various solutions. After a helpful discussion of negatives, chemicals, and the fine printing of black-and-white photographs, this aptly titled book takes readers well beyond monochrome prints. The authors discuss the most popular alternative processes, including salt printing and platinum printing, along with hand tinting and airbrushing. Lavishly illustrated with breathtaking prints, Beyond Monochrome clearly demonstrates what master printers can accomplish in the darkroom with a skilled hand and a sensitive eye. Both books are highly recommended for all photography collections in academic and larger public libraries. Beyond Monochrome should be considered an essential purchase for every library where there is interest in darkroom processes. Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL
