Library Journal Review

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 (c) Copyright 2010.
