Photographic manipulation is a familiar phenomenon in the digital era, but it was roughly 100 times as impressive during a day and age when the idea "Photoshop" was only something out of science fiction novels. Here are some amazing old-school manipulated photos that will leave you wondering how they heck these photogs pulled it off. If you like what you see, make sure to pick up the hardcover book featuring these shots and more.
