It sounds like you're beyond the point where the few books available are
useful. The Keepers of Light by Crawford may be worth buying, but it's not
essential if you've already read Scopick. After several months of gum
printing, I was experimenting and learning new things about the process that
weren't covered in books. There are numerous books covering color theory,
production of color seperation negatives, etc....that may be helpful. I've
gleaned useful information from dozens of sources ranging from Kodak
publications to 80 year old photography books. Publications for the graphic
arts, fine art, and printing industries will also be a good resource.

Best regards,
