The Platinum Printing Workshop, Third Edition, Printed
THE NEW PRINTED THIRD EDITION IS NOW AVAILABLE
Platinum/palladium prints are renowned for their grace and beauty. The process was invented in the nineteenth century and still thrives as ‘The Reigning Queen’ of fine art photographic printing.
The Platinum Printing Workshop, now in its third edition, shows you how to make beautiful platinum/palladium prints. It guides you through your first decisions, and then moves on to more advanced topics such as how the image is formed, techniques for contrast control, and the power of humidity.
With 212 pages, this book covers the traditional ‘Developing-Out’ process with all its main variants (A+B, Dichromate and Na2), plus the ‘Printing-Out’ processes (Malde-Ware and Ziatype).
New in this edition is an extensive 33 page formulary detailing the materials, recipes and usage of the platinum/palladium chemistry.
The author’s accessible and jargon-free style makes this book easy to read, and helps you to start to make great prints straight away.
Please note that this book contains nudity.

Reviews for the Second Edition
“I have been doing platinum/palladium printing for 5-7 years and took a couple of years off. I got this book and read it to review what I knew and what I forgot. OMG this book is crazy good. If you want to get into this or review the process it is worth the money.”

★★★★★ “Up-to-date information on platinum printing is quite hard to come by so Ian Leake has produced a very useful and much needed book. He is fastidious in his approach to platinum printing, and whilst you needn't follow his example to the letter, I'm sure anybody new to platinum printing will find the book very insightful indeed.”
