Photography, and particularly black and white photography, is a form of applied design. The design of The Photographer's Black and White Handbook, and the meticulous reproductions of the widely acclaimed black and white photos of the author, add weight and authority to the text. Today's readers want to enjoy their learning experience, and it is a proven fact that having fun enhances learning retention. Therefore, the technical information in The Photographer's Black and White Handbook-some of which is rather ohard coreo-is encased in travel narratives, with field locations and destinations ranging from France to Japan, to Spain and Morocco, New England, and the American West.
