"A kind of Swiss Army knife of a book, covering not only the Lumière family's pioneering photographic inventions, dating to the mid-1880s, but also the history of color photography and technical details of processes and preservation. . . . A brief but beautiful portfolio of images concludes each chapter of this book, which will be an essential resource for students and collectors of photography."--Bookforum

"[This book] resents an indispensible compendium of rare images from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, an era we tend to think of in black and white. . . . This volume provides an authoritative account of the development of the autochrome process, including every fascinating dead end."--Wall Street Journal

"Highly recommended."--Choice

"The Getty Conservation Institute has been releasing a series of amazing photo history books and this fabulous recent addition . . . is no exception. . . . This book belongs on the shelf of any serious photographer, curator, maker, or history buff. It's a fabulously interesting read filled with quality information and wonderful photographs and images."--f295
