Two books that recently arrived — Celebrating the Negative by John Loengard and Developer Trays by John Cyr.

Celebrating the Negative was first published in 1994 after Loengard had tracked down and photographed the negatives of some of the most famous images in photography, all held in the hands of either the photographer, printer or curator. I knew I should have bought when it was first issued but, for whatever reason, I never did. Probably because there was no PayPal or Amazon back then and we had to make our own amusement.
