Making the Sliding Box
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.

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.
** Note: If ebay shipping for your country is too much, I have put this book onto Amazon as a print-on-demand. This may be a more economic option due to shipping costs. The only difference is that the Amazon books are not spiral-bound and are on thinner paper stock. Just look it up on your country's Amazon and see if it is an option for you. **
