After many years of making high quality B&W photographs with Leica, Rolleiflex, Hasselblad and Graflex it became clear to me that best quaility work came from my Graflex camera.

I also knew no new ,user books had been written about how to use Graflex equipment in modern times.

So, in October of last year I finished the book about ho to use these classic cameras in modern times.

Late last year, I chose not to market the book after a short run-in with some very un-polite people on the Large-formate website.

The book I'm sure will become a classic for all Graflex users and is priced at $35.00 plus $5 for shipping (usa).

If interested contact me by phone at 317-684-1888 or just send a check to Jay Allen at 1526 S. New Jesey St., Indianapolis, Indiana 46225

Creative Graflex Photography was written because there wasno new information about how to use thesegreat clsssic cameras.

Also, there was a lot of miss information flating arount aout the Speed Graphic leading people to believe that it was only good for press work and that view cameras could do everyhing etter than a Speed Graphic which is not true.

The speed graphic with its rear shutter can handle lenses that will not work well on a view camera.

These lenses can be uncoated and have larger F: stops than sandard vie camera lenses. Also many eay soft-focs lenses did ot have shutters and will work fine on a speed Graphic or a Graflex (ecause that is what they were built for).

Dear Sir.
I receive your answer, but a bank check is not an economic and reasonable way from France.

Many thanks for your answer
