The Print

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of the 20th century's most iconic photographic images and helped nurture the art of photography through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery. The Print--the third volume in Adams' celebrated series of books on photographic techniques--has taught generations of photographers how to explore the artistic possibilities of printmaking. Examples of Adams' own work clarify the principles discussed. This classic handbook distills the knowledge gained through a lifetime in photography and remains as vital today as when it was first published. The Print takes you step-by-step--from designing and furnishing a darkroom to mounting and displaying your photographs, from making your first print to mastering advanced techniques, such as developer modifications, toning and bleaching, and burning and dodging. Filled with indispensable darkroom techniques and tips, this amply illustrated guide shows how printmaking--the culmination of photography's creative process--can be used expressively to enhance an image. "Adams is a clear-thinking writer whose concepts cannot but help the serious photographer." - New York Times "A master-class kind of guide from an undisputed master." - Publishers Weekly Over 1 million copies sold. Publisher's Note: This ebook of The Print works best as a digital companion to the print edition. The ebook was produced by electronically scanning and digitizing a print edition, and as a result, your reading device may display images with halftone or moiré patterns.

The Impact Of Print On Demand On Academic Books

The Impact Of Print On Demand On Academic Books

The convergence of online book selling, digital printing, digital document workflow management and the computerization of small parcel logistics created a unique opportunity to create a viable commercial model for printing and supplying books on demand. This innovation was swiftly embraced by the academic publishing community heralding the rescue of the languishing academic monograph. The possibilities captured the imagination of creative academic and niche publishers enabling custom publishing, student editions of monographs, self-compiled wiki books and even the establishment of new university presses and open access publishers. The Impact of Print on-Demand on Academic Books takes an in-depth look at this phenomenon by looking back on two decades of innovation, reviewing the present state of academic publishing with respect to works being printed on demand and compiling the current forecasts and speculation about the future of academic and niche publishing given the impact of print on-demand. Presents knowledge on the print-on-demand industry and chronicles developments and their impact on publishing Provides a useful guide for practitioners and students of publishing, and is ideal for academic publishing historians and business academics interested in innovation and digital developments Includes an international perspective, with information from Europe, North America, Australia, and Singapore/China Chronicles business case studies collected from interviews with key individuals from companies who have shaped, or are shaping, the academic POD landscape

Books And Social Media

Books And Social Media

Social media and digital technologies are transforming what and how we read. Books and Social Media considers the way in which readers and writers come together in digital communities to discover and create new works of fiction. This new way of engaging with fiction stretches the boundaries of what has been considered a book in the past by moving beyond the physical or even digitally bound object to the consideration of content, containers, and the ability to share. Using empirical data and up-to-date research methods, Miriam Johnson introduces the ways in which digitally social platforms give rise to a new type of citizen author who chooses to sidestep the industry’s gatekeepers and share their works directly with interested readers on social platforms. Gender and genre, especially, play a key role in developing the communities in which these authors write. The use of surveys, interviews, and data mining brings to the fore issues of gender, genre, community, and power, which highlight the push and pull between these writers and the industry. Questioning what we always thought we knew about what makes a book and traditional publishing channels, this book will be of interest to anyone studying or researching publishing, book history, print cultures, and digital and contemporary literatures.

The Book Of The Animals Episode 6 Bilingual English Spanish

The Book Of The Animals Episode 6 Bilingual English Spanish

NEW EDITION!!Well... it seems that these animals don't want to take their medicine! But step by step, each one discovers that taking medicine is very important for the animals, as well as for the children!A funny way to learn and a funny way to teach. As everyone knows how difficult it can be to explain to young children how important it is to take medicine...---THE BOOK OF THE ANIMALS:FUN LEARNING FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTSWhat are certainly the most occurring moments in a parent's life? When their child doesn't want to wash, eat, sleep, go to school, share, take medicine, get vaccinated... And what can a parent answer to these refusals?The successful "Book of The Animals" bilingual children's books series was created with the aim to help both parents and children to discover the benefits of washing, eating, sleeping, going to school, sharing, taking medicine, getting vaccinated... in a fun as well as educational manner. Since the books are also bilingual, parents will enjoy the teaching and the interactivity they can gain from reading them with their children.THE AUDIENCEThe books are geared towards children aged 2-5, before elementary/primary school.They will likely be bilingual children whose parents want to encourage the learning of their two current languages.They will also be children whose parents want to teach a language at a young age.Some teachers have also been using the books of the series as a way to teach a second language to children, with themes easy for them to both understand and memorise.THE CURRENT BOOKSThere are currently seven books in the series.Each episode brings on new animals, new words, new situations and new stories.- Ep.1. "These Animals... Don't Want to Wash!" (2008)- Ep.2. "These Animals... Don't Want to Eat!" (2009)- Ep.3. "These Animals... Don't Want to Sleep!" (2010)- Ep.4. "These Animals... Don't Want to Go to School!" (2011)- Ep.5. "These Animals... Don't Want to Share!" (2011)- Ep.6. "These Animals... Don't Want to Take their Medicine!" (2012)- Ep.7. "These Animals... Don't Want to Get Vaccinated!" (2012)The books are all available in either bilingual or monolingual versions:- Bilingual versions: English-French, English-Portuguese, English-Italian, English-Spanish, English-Swedish, English-Creole, English-Japanese...More versions still to come!Check out the official website: www.TheBookOfTheAnimals.comREVIEW"The Book of the Animals is a planned series of illustrated books for young children. [...] These delightful books tell the story of what happens when the animals in the stories, like many young children, don't want to eat and don't want to wash...The books are very suitable both for reading to young children and for older children to use to learn to read in both languages. They might even persuade them to wash and eat their dinner!The repetitive structure is supportive of children learning new words and the illustrations work well alongside the text to help understanding of unfamiliar words.I can easily imagine young children demanding repeat readings and enjoying learning the text by heart as many children do with favourite stories. Children learning to make up and write their own stories might well want to write a personalised version, using the structure as a prop.I think the stories would work well both in the home and in the classroom."(Review published in The Cass School of Education, by Dr Raymonde Sneddon, Research Fellow for "The Cass School of Education" at the University of East London, and Honorary Research Fellow of Birkbeck College, in the Department of Applied Linguistics)SUPPORT'The Book of The Animals' series is supported & recommended by ABRIR UK, a Brazilian Association for Educational Projects in the United Kingdom. www.Abrir.org.ukOfficial website: TheBookOfTheAnimals.com
