Equally relevant for the novice or the advanced user, Polaroid: The Missing Manual is highly accessible and intuitive.

An introduction charts the first widespread use of Polaroid, its subsequent decline and its current rebirth.

Section 1 gives a comprehensive breakdown of every method of image manipulation, such as 'Polaroid image transfers', 'cyanotype contact printing' and 'emulsion lifts'. Each technique comes with step-bystep, photographic instructions and a showcase of the very best end results.

Section 2 shows how to breathe new life into old equipment, from adapting Type 80 cameras so they accept Fuji film to building pinhole Polaroid cameras.

A resources section contains an index of cameras, compatible films and a guide on where to buy equipment.

With 450 full-colour illustrations giving step-by-step instructions, this book offers a complete course in Polaroid photography and its myriad potential applications. It gives photographers, art students and vintage camera enthusiasts of all ages the knowledge and skills to push the boundaries of what an instant photograph can be.
