Let’s do something fun that everyone can take part in for this installment of the Analogue Reader. I’m not sure if this is familiar to you, but let’s do 15 Books, where you share with the community 15 books that you’ve read that will always stick with you. Are you ready?
The rules are simple:
In the comments, name the first fifteen books (in no particular order) that you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Don’t take too long to think about it.
If you like a series, you can count them as one book.
Do you know of a bookworm lomographer who likely has something interesting to share for this little game of ours? Go ahead and tag them along (with @[username]) at the bottom of your comment!
Allow me to start:
1. The Tokyo Zodiac Murders by Soji Shimada (The book that sparked my interest in detective fiction and Japanese novels)
2. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas (Spent sleepless nights reading it when I was in high school!)
3. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (One of the best books I’ve ever read)
4. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (Another awesome classic)
5. Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho (Makes you think about what is considered “normal”)
6. Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami (My first Murakami experience)
7. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel (Love story + Recipes = Interesting)
8. Ring by Koji Suzuki (Yes, as in the SADAKO Ring.)
9. Spiral by Koji Suzuki (continuation of Ring…great book too!)
10. Ardor by Lily Prior

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
