Drawing on the workshops and seminars he gives frequently, Arentz explains a method of photographic printing that gradually became an alternative to the dominant silver-based methods, but is reviving in popularity as an art medium. He describes the multiple sensitometric, chemical, and mechanical tasks required for consistent and predictable results. He also includes 54 of his own duotone prints. He does not provide a bibliography. -- Copyright 2000 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved  
  
 
  
Synopsis 
  
A complete guide to platinum and palladium printing. It explains the method of print-making with an emphasis on technical control and addresses setting up the laboratory, negative making, paper chemicals and sensitometry as it applies to the process.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Platinum and palladium printing is one of the easiest of the non-silver processes to learn but it also offers a number of variations, which the photographer can closely control. Platinum printing encompasses three basic phases which are somewhat under the control the photographer: sensitometry, chemistry and mechanics. 
  
 
  
This unique book is the only thoroughly comprehensive work on platinum and palladium printing. This exciting method of print-making is explained with an emphasis on technical control not only to manage the cost of materials but also to teach the reader to optimize the variations possible with this process. 
  
 
  
Photographers interested in learning or improving upon this process will find this book an indispensable resource and reference guide.
