From Library Journal:

This amply illustrated book provides an overview of alternative printing processes, including several nearly forgotten traditional processes, such as salt printing and photo etching. Similar to John Barnier's Coming into Focus: A Step-by-Step Guide to Alternative Photographic Printing (LJ 10/1/00), the book takes a straightforward, how-to approach to each of these unique and often complicated processes in a series of short chapters. Each chapter provides some historical background, discusses advantages and disadvantages of the technique, provides a shopping list, and then outlines the method of making prints. Photographers Webb and Reed teach about albumen printing, cyanotypes, bromoil transfer, and many other approaches to making photographs. Information about presentation of one's work and further resources, such as web sites, books, and suppliers, will further aid the practitioner. Valuable to anyone who wishes to make photographs safely and competently using these varied processes, the book will also appeal to those who want to learn more about these methods. Recommended for both public and academic libraries, especially those with extensive photography collections. Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL
