That is often the problem with photobooks: the writer has no idea about
the process and tries to hide the lack of knowledge.
Here you could say that all the prints are monochrome , and the Fresson
is a multicolor process. See Luis Nadeau.
You can be pretty sure that the prints in your book are mainly
oilprints and some bromoils.
