It has been more than two years since Harald Johnson wrote the bible of digital printing (Mastering Digital Printing: The Photographer's and Artist's Guide to High-Quality Digital Output). And now, the heavily-anticipated second edition has just released. Mastering Digital Printing, Second Edition - an authoritative, in-depth reference to the new world of digital printing for photography and fine art, is a complete revision of the first, which quickly became the subject's definitive guide.

Upon this new release, the accolades are already pouring in. "Still the encyclopedia of photo printing, Harald Johnson's Mastering Digital Printing, Second Edition answers every question," says Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource (www.imagingresource.com). Pioneering digital artist Dorothy Simpson Krause states, "The second edition of Mastering Digital Printing is a major update and rewrite with important new material. For both the beginner and advanced printer there is no better source." And photo print permanence expert Henry Wilhelm adds, "Highly recommended, this new edition is a very useful and up-to-date overview of the field." The book includes print permanence data from Wilhelm Imaging Research (www.wilhelm-research.com).

Written for photographers, digital and traditional artists, and printmakers, Mastering Digital Printing, Second Edition, provides a thorough introduction to this exploding medium plus instruction in the latest digital printing techniques. Part overview and part how-to, Mastering Digital Printing, Second Edition not only walks readers through a complete, step-by-step workflow for making a great inkjet print, but it also includes sections on how to pick the right inkjet printer, how to choose inks and papers, color management, print permanence, self-printing versus using a professional printmaker, and advanced printing and image-editing techniques.

"The second edition, as did the first, introduces readers to a revolution that, although barely a dozen years old, has enabled photographers and artists all over the world to create and produce their work in a way that has never been available to them before: with high-quality digital printing," explains Harald Johnson. "This much-needed revision meets the expectations that the first edition set, and goes even further."
