"There is a LOT of information in this book, and it is well-illustrated when necessary. Basic color theory is presented, as well as discussions on color spaces, gamut, and other terms relating to printing. If you are doing high quality fineart printing for selling your images, this book should be a must-read for you, even if you have a printing
setup already. But if you are just breaking into the field, it should be your first step prior to investing in quipment, to ensure you get what you need to produce the products you wish."

"This is a good book. It contains more information than most people want. When it comes to color management, most people just want their pictures to look good. Fine Art Printing for Photographers is for the others who need truer colors."

"The level of detail combined with the breadth of topics is very impressive...I recommend [this book] to anyone serious about getting into fine art printing or improving their prints."
--John Watson, PhotoDoto
"Fine Art Printing for Photographers continues to be the best overall book on fine art printing. This is not a rehash of a printer manual nor is it just a glossy overview of printing topics. This is a fairly technical yet easily readable book about how to get the best out of your prints."
--T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics Magazine
"Jergen Gulbins and Uwe Steinmueller have done an excellent job in producing a volume that will serve as an introduction to Lightroom for the novice, and yet contains valuable advanced data that will fill the needs of the advanced Lightroom user. I consider it a valuable addition to my bookshelf even though I thought that I was a reasonably experienced Lightroom user."
