"This book is for beginners. This book is for experts. This book is for me. Even though, at this time, I haven’t taken the time to work with alternative processes, since the 1970s, after taking a look at this new release (and update) from Jill Enfield, I am ready to borrow a friend’s 5x7, and go out in the field and try my hand (again!)."

Each process is explained in a straightforward manner. Her directions are thorough but she encourages experimentation and gives new ways to approach them. The book is appropriate for someone new to historical processes but also is full of information and details for more experienced readers.
Many images are included to help the reader visualize how to perform a technique as well as beautiful images from artists who make them. These are very helpful but also stimulate us to try and achieve them.
Jill Enfield is an experienced photographer, educator and curator who is also a wonderful teacher. She excites you during her classes and this comes through in this book too. Her keen interest in her craft is passed on to us to enjoy, learn from and interpret in our own unique way through this new book.
Lots of stuff here with some user advice I doubt you'd get from the manufacturer. Lots of internet addresses for you to look things up at. The ones I looked at were still valid but not equally useful. It'll get you started. I'd want more information than is printed here but you get enough to find it elsewhere.
