Bromoil: A Foundation Course by Derek Watkins
The bromoil process, first devised in 1907 and now enjoying a revival, involves bleaching out the silver image from a conventional monochrome print and replacing it with an image formed from oily pigment. The process gives the photographer impressively painterly and atmospheric effects. The end product is a unique, unrepeatable work of art, which is even more durable than a silver print. This book describes the technique in step-by-step detail, assuming no previous knowledge on the reader's part. The process is not difficult, and no elaborate tools or materials are required. The book also introduces some other pigment-based processes, including bromoil transfer.
