Here is an excerpt from Koenig's book, page 122, in the bilbiography section
after he cites Wade's 1978 book:

"A seminal book that pushed the concept of photography as far as any other
has. In it, Wade mentions a monochromatic gum and oil printing method and
provided Koenig with the initial stimulus to go further with the method."
There's more.

Judy while not having a copy of Carl Koenig's Gum Oil book in front of me i
am sure from memory that he sited the Wade book as his inspiration. I think
we should give credit to Koenig for giving this process the exposure he
does.Gum Oil has in common with Postfactory review something very rare in
this day and age real enthusiasm.PS my grubby little hands can't wait to get
hold of the latest PFR.Dennis Klinker
