Review quote

""The Digital Print" provides an amazing array of authoritative information that is crucial for anyone who deals with digital prints in any way, from making them to collecting, documenting, storing, handling, researching, and writing (or reading) about them. Certainly it is a great resource even for those who only look at digital prints."--"The Washington Print Club Quarterly"
