Those interested in Ansel Adam's books should be aware that there were various revisions over the years. The last edition came out a decade after his death (1995). It's not as dry as the early versions.

Another really interesting book is Adam's "Making of Twenty Images" or something similar. In it, he talks about what he did to capture the image on the negative, and then shows both a straight, unmodified print of the negative, and a final print, with a description of why he made each adjustment. Even though the methods are different in digital, the thought process is identical.

I agree. His later books were much easier to read. I own most of them myself and cherish them.
