> Dear List,
> As many of you know, I have been working on a comprehensive gum book since
> 2003. I finally put my money (loads of it) where my mouth is this year, and
> over the last 13 months wrote and finished Gum Printing and Other AMAZING
> Contact Printing Processes. I can officially announce it because as of this
> morning's FedEx delivery to the publisher it is NOW in the printing queue
> slated for the end of January (unless I keel over in the next two weeks and
> the publisher doesn't get paid). I was so worried I wouldn't complete it
> before some sort of tragic demise that I had a backup author in place for
> my hubby to send all my research to, which shows how important it is to me.
> Without the list's help over fourteen years I would never have written the

> Experimental Photography Workbook which is almost completely illustrated

> I've kept the price as low as I can, the same as EPW even though it is
> 72pp more and required far more research $$$ over a decade. As I've said
> before, birthing children or books is a labor of love, not a revenue source
> (especially problematic with postage and the weight of the book at 2.7lb).
> It is the replacement text for Alternative Processes Condensed which is
> now officially retired, including all the same processes except for
> photopolymer gravure, but much much more (including casein). Rumor has it
> there will be two books coming out this year on photopolymer gravure but
> far be it from me to announce those authors' names until they do, and I
> took out that process because it requires a press.
> This is a good year for alt pro; Jill Enfield's brand new alt book is
> coming out soon as well as a brand new revision of James' alt bible, both
> books which I can't wait to buy. Alt is truly alive and well in 2013!
> Reminds me of 1894-1910. Here's hoping more galleries will catch on to that
