Quick Overview

The book Salt print is the third book in a series of books about historical and alternative photography. In it, the reader will learn the basic techniques of salted, albumenized, arrowroot, and matte paper. The author presents not only basic knowledge, as in all of his books, but further extends it with descriptions of other old, wonderful processes that are hard to find in other contemporary texts on this topic. Thus, he takes us into the forgotten world of printing on glass, where the reader will learn through very understandable descriptions the manufacturing process of once extremely popular opalotypes (printing on translucent white glass), and as a finale, the author explains one of the most beautiful of these almost forgotten techniques, the art of manufacturing orotones (photos printed on gilded glass), which, at the time of publication of this book, is mastered by only a few people in the world.
