A working guide to making carbon and carbro prints, including detailed instructions on making carbon tissue and final support papers. Carbon is in the opinion of many the most beautiful of all photographic print-making processes and the author of this manual is one of the leading authorities on carbon printing in the world.

Highly recommended.

    Please post a notice here when you get the re-print done. Though I’m in Puerto Rico, it is part of the US and I have a USPS PO Box so no problem. PLEASE! I really need to get a copy of your book. Roberto
