    Has anyone got any books on alternative techniques that they would recommend? They can be old or new. As long as they're nice and big and give you lots of ideas.

    :)

    Check out Jill Enfield or Theresa Airey for alt stuff and some Polaroid info. Kathleen Carr's books on Polaroid processes are great fun to read and the gallery sections are great. :D

    I have a Jill Enfield book and I really like what I've read so far. She gives good descriptions and lots of info. I need to find that and read s'more, I think it's buried somewhere. :|

    When I was looking for an alt book, I saw one that was huge and looked fabulous, but I didn't want to spend that much... I wish I remembered which it was...

    I have Way Beyond Monochrome. It's mostly more advanced darkroom work. It's not alt stuff. Well not that I've actually read it yet... but that's how it seems...
