Ok, so something's not right with the developing, I seem to have a a persistent problem with banding and odd patches on the negatives though I think I *may* have figured out why. Nevertheless, I offer these for scrutiny :) The smaller of the open books is an Active Service New Testament , 1914 -1915 that belonged to my great-grandfather (I think, a relative at any rate). Its in poor shape, eaten by bugs, dry, and fading but it is over 100 years old and was probably in worse places than my bookshelf so all in all it's a miracle that it's survived at all. I'm going to use it again and try to do it and g-g-f justice next time.
