    Ansel Adams Examples - new edition

    New edition of the book recently released. Content is identical but the quality of the print reproductions has apparently been brought up to date (they went back to the original prints to redo this).

    No, I donít have any links to post for this.

    Re: Ansel Adams Examples - new edition

    Always an interesting read. My takeaway, long ago, was that Adams, despite his great technical knowledge, often had to work very hard in the darkroom to achieve the print he wanted (which was often different from his original conception). Something not always appreciated by those who think it's all by the numbers!
    A new edition with better print quality will be welcome, although I'll be keeping my old copy (if I can find it).

    Scroll about halfway down the page (a few paragraphs down) for mention of the new printing of Examples .

    My reading of the posts indicate th images are superior to those in recent paperback editions, not the original hard cover.

    That was my interpretation as well.
