The Silver Sunbeam

The Silver Sunbeam is surely one of the must have reads for any photographer using historic processes. Written by John Towler in 1864, before you get too excited, this is a 1969 reprint.

I know a lot of these books are available as modern day facsimiles but I’d rather have an older printed copy, even if not the first edition, I must be getting environmentally friendly with my old age…


It’ll be some light reading for my holiday to Portugal at the end of the month.
