Colour photographs, now so much a part of everyday life, are given anew dimension in this clear, wide-ranging view of the development of colour photographic techniques. From the first days of photography, in the early 19th century, the search began to find a way of reproducing accurately the colours as well as the forms of images seen through the photographer's lens. Brian Coe analyses the many innovations, some which bore fruit, others which led nowhere, into their major lines of development. He lakes the story up to the 1940s, by which time all the principles of modern colour photography had been established. 70 Colour Plates. 144pp. Size: 4to Large Post (10½" x 8¼" approx.)
