Colin Harding, curator of photographic technology at the National Media Museum, has a book due out in June 2009 which compiles a series of 75 articles originally written for the British Black and White Photography
magazine. The cameras, which are sourced from the National Media Museum in Bradford, are arranged in chronological order, with a chapter for each era and a double-page spread devoted to each camera. Each spread has a large photograph of the camera in question, smaller ilustrations of variants, a potted history giving an insight into the camera's development and a succinct biography and photograph of the inventor where appropriate.
The book is: 192 pages and hardbound. It is available for £25 and is published by Photographers' Institute Press. A review will appear here after publication.
