The writing of this book was undertaken almost by accident. While I was freelancing as an illustrator, I showed my portfolio of photo images to Lista Duren, an editor at Curtin & London Publishing Company. Ms. Duren brought the portfolio to Dennis Curtin, who, on the spot, asked me to write a book about the techniques represented. Curtin & London subsequently ceased publishing photography books, and so Focal Press picked up the manuscript.
I wish to acknowledge the work of the staffs at Curtin & London and Focal Press, as well as the enormous contribution of Virginia Holmes, who helped research and write the first draft. Gene Laughter, who was recommended to me by Karl Koenig, wrote the thorough Bromoil Printing section in Chapter 11 and was a delightful collaborator, even under pressure. I was fortunate that Gene could secure the photographic expertise of Wayne Firth, who took the step-by-step illustrations for that chapter. I appreciate being educated about chromoskedasic painting by Birgit Blyth, who, fortunately, did not make up that word. Elaine O’Neil assisted in organizing and refining the manuscript and helped write the section on toning.

Packet Guide to Routing and Switching
For a long time, I was very happy building Ethernet networks, working with switches
and then moving to 802.11. It took awhile, but eventually I realized that the world of
interconnected networks cannot be reached with Layer 2 alone. In addition, as you
spread your wings from the Layer 2 broadcast domains, you encounter the wonders of...
