Koenig's main interests during his two decades of photography have been high quality black-and-white printing and alternative processes. Here he explains a new method of using a 19th-century printing technique. It involves contact printing a positive transparency onto gum-coated paper, then applying oil paint and rubbing it into non- gummed areas of the print. With bleach etching, monochromatic and polychromatic variations are possible. No date is noted for the first edition; the second adds a chapter on digital technology. There is no index. -- Copyright 2000 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved

Gumoil printing involves contact-printing a positive transparency onto gum-coated paper. Oil paint is then applied and rubbed into nongummed areas of the print. With bleach etching, mono- and polychromatic variations are possible. A chapter on digital printing combines the new and the historic, making this technique even more accessible for the art photographer.
