About the Author

Sandy King has been a fine art photographer since the early 1970s, printing with carbon transfer, kallitype, platinum/palladium and Van Dyke. For over two decades, King has devoted much of his time to carbon printing with publication of personal work in Photovision, Silvershotz and View Camera, conducting carbon printing workshops, and author of numerous publications. To see his work, visit www.sandykingphotography.com Don Nelson has been a large format photographer since 1976, using 8x10, 7x17, and 12x20 inch cameras. Nelson has been an alternative process printer for the past three decades, using primarily carbon and platinum/palladium since 1991, although he has experimented with most alternative processes. John Lockhart was inspired by the platinum work of Paul Outerbridge which led him to handcrafted printmaking and ultimately carbon transfer. In his work, Lockhart combines the authenticity and immediacy of documentary and street photography with a painstaking approach to printing each image as a handcrafted artifact. Lockhart is also involved in preserving, evolving, and teaching the craft. To see his work, visit www.johnlockhart.net


"Will be a sought-after reference for carbon printers at all levels, but also collectors, gallerists, curators, and anyone with a keen interest in the history and practice of carbon printing. The book is intelligible and comprehensive on the topic of monochrome carbon transfer; the chapter on color is an added bonus. Carbon transfer can be a daunting undertaking, but the writing exudes good sense, informed by expertise and craftsmanship." Philip Schwartz, Carbon Transfer Printmaker

"This is a welcome addition to the world of carbon transfer. After printing carbon transfers for more than 14 years I was delighted to discover thought-provoking information and more carbon related issues for me to research. Thank you Sandy King, Don Nelson, and John Lockhart for an amazing epic publication." Ellie Young, Founder, Gold Street Studios

"The authors of Carbon Transfer Printing have brought extensive personal expertise and knowledge to this publication. This guide to an exquisitely detailed photographic process will provide the photographic artist with a practical means to achieve success. The numerous examples of current printers are an inspiration."
