Hi Mike,

I received my book in yesterday’s mail & it is so exciting to see all the additions that were put in after the symposium and the wonderful workshop that you and Pradip Malde conducted for us!  I, for one, was so grateful to have been there and experienced the beautiful images, all the information to keep them for now & the future, and to meet such devoted people like you.  Connie did such a magnificent job with editing this project.  

The results will be worth the wait for everyone because there is a whole lot more information included that was not presented at the symposium.  The research and information gathered over the years just came out of the woodwork, so to speak, to be included.  So, it is not simply a compilation of the presentations, but truly a reference for decades to come.  

Thanks for all you have contributed over the years to these processes and their preservation.  

Warm regards,

> The long-awaited text on Platinum and Palladium Photographs: Technical History, Connoisseurship, and Preservation, edited by Constance McCabe, is now published and orders are shipping. The maintenance of image quality entailed some reprinting, hence the regrettable delay, but I think you will find the final outcome very worthwhile. Details are here:

> I know of no other specialist text of this scope and depth. It was a privilege and a pleasure to collaborate with the 46 “Platinistas” who contributed to it, and I think between us we have raised a landmark in the historiography of alternative photographic processes.
