Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In The Last Layer-the follow-up to Digital Alchemy, her successful book on alternative printmaking techniques-Bonny Lhotka teaches how to make prints that take their inspiration from early printmaking processes. In this book, Lhotka shows students step-by-step how to create modern-day versions of anthotypes, cyanotypes, tintypes, and daguerreotypes as well as platinum and carbon prints. She also reinvents the photogravure and Polaroid transfer processes and explores and explains groundbreaking techniques for combining digital images with traditional monotype, collograph, and etching press prints. By applying these classic techniques to modern images, students will be able to recreate the look of historical printmaking techniques and explore the limits of their creative voice.
