Traditional and digital contact negative production are featured- plus an array of processes including cyanotype, Van Dyke, Kallitype, gum bichromate, platinum/palladium, Ziatype, Ambrotype, and hand-applied emulsions.***---- The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes is both landmark and guide.

Photography’s classic methods and materials are explained, explored, extended, and reinvented, while marching well into the age of inkjet and digital. -- quoted from Judy Seigel, Founder and Editor, The World Journal of Post Factory Photography.
