Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
One of the world's greatest institutions, the British Library, has just launched a smartphone application (covering the iPhone, iPad and Android OS platforms) to allow easy and convenient exploration on the move of some of its many priceless collections.
There are over 100 highlights, including literary, historical, music-related and scientific documents - alongside illuminated manuscripts and sacred texts. Each is presented through high-resolution images, allowing the viewer to zoom in and explore in detail. 'Treasures' offers smartphone users a true multimedia experience.
I have been reliably informed that there is a section entitled 'Invention of Photography' under the Science category! The official press release can be found here.
