Making the Sliding Box
Special note: I do have both books on Amazon now. They are not spiral-bound though as the versions that I mail out linked at the bottom of this page. In Amazon, you will have to type my name (Ty Guillory) into Amazon's search box to find the books.
The sliding box camera is a very early camera design dating back to the daguerreotype era, though it can be used for any of the plate photography methods. The all-wood construction lends it to be a beautiful piece of a working photographic tool.
This book covers the entire construction phase.
The camera made for the writing of this book is a 5"x7". However, there is a section on measurements & adaptations that explains how to adapt the camera to fit your lens and format size.
Shipping is included in each of the
"Buy it Now" options.
Books will be shipped in water-resistant plastic bags and cardboard book shipping box.
United States buyers,
I have found that the new eBay shipping system for international orders is working better than me shipping directly overseas. So, please go to the US eBay link below and type "Make a Wet Plate Sliding Box Camera" into the search section.
