Publisher's Description
Pring's Photographer's Miscellany is a priceless compendium of the history, techniques and trivia of photography. Meet the mad, genius, daring (and sometimes fraudulent) pioneers and practitioners of all things photographic, Find out how ravenous soldiers jeopardised the success of pigeon-cam in the first world war, and learn how to take photographs on wood and even apples. Discover that the principle of the camera obscura was known in China as early as the fifth-century BC, and that the biggest photograph in the world was taken using a disused aircraft hangar. Learn how to safely photograph a solar eclipse, and how to use the contents of your nose to eradicate a scratch on a negative.

Pring's Photographer's Miscellany contains all this and much, much more. It is a perfect companion for all enthusiasts of the medium, as well as for anyone interested in a fascinating, and often unpredictable, ride through the development of photography. No pun intended.
