I came across this book after hearing an interview with Andrew on Scott Shepard 's Inside Digital Photo podcast. When he started to explain what was in the book I really took notice and ordered it immediately. I originally expected the usual collection of tips and tricks to make your inkjet prints better but Andrew's interview had me expecting more.
In the first part of the book Andrew covers everything you need to consider to make top quality, gallery grade, professional prints. And I mean EVERYTHING. How to prepare your files, how to choose a printer, black & white conversion, and on and on. Along with all of this extensive and in depth information, Andrew provides help with putting together a portfolio, business cards, matting, you name it. The first part of this book alone is worth the admission. Andrew's style is easy to read and his information is easy to work into you personal workflow.
The remaining chapters are a treasure chest of guest artists' tips and ideas. Phil Bard, Edward Fausty, C. David Toble, Derek Cooper, Amadou Diallo, and Dorothy Simpson Krause are some of the guests you can learn from. Each artist brings their own experience and style to the art of printmaking and presentation. This section was a real treat.
Andrew Darlow has far exceeded the expectation of his book's title. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and will keep it as a valued reference as I hone my printmaking skills. Don't miss this one!
The first half of the book lays out all the steps and decisions a photographer needs to make before, and after, purchasing an ink jet printer. Issues such as color management, and uses for prints such as portfolio and presentations, are also discussed. The second half of the book is written by a series of guest contributors, well regarded experts, artists, and luminaries in the field, including R. Mac Holbert of Nash Editions, and photographic artist Joel Meyerowitz. This portion of the book covers several printing topics in-depth, including specific paper tips, how to print promotional pieces, framing and mounting, and planning for exhibitions. As a photographer who, like most, have traded a darkroom for a desktop, I'm happy to have this book as an important addition to my reference shelf. And as a Photoshop instructor I now have a great book to recommend to all my students who want to know what kind of printer to get, and how to master the art of inkjet printing.
Further, the organization and cryptic hints like "(L4.20)" don't make it easy to read. The (Lx.xx), by the way refers to the website where the cryptic number is translated into an actual link (not all are available yet). While that may be a security feature and easier to keep updated, it also means you need internet access to read this book (in some places). The author also relies heavily on Photoshop for even the simplest tasks (i.e. resizing) and it sometimes appears to suit no other purpose that showing: "Look I have Photoshop".
Generally, I think this book serves a purpose, but it's less useful for advanced users that are looking for background information on technology and related limitations in resolution and reproducible color.Read more ›
