Fratelli Alinari: The archives, printing procedures in the Alinari Archives, the photographic files, the new photographic campaigns, the art ... image preserved, the photographic exhibitions by Fratelli Alinari

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Although this is mainly a promotional book for the Alinari museum, archive, and printworks, it has a lot of great photographs. Actually, the work they do to preserve photography is pretty interesting.

The images span from around 1850 to 1985 with the bulk of them in the earlier years. Most are photos taken in Italy with negatives and prints of all kinds of processes: albumen prints, silver bromide prints, celloidineprints, and daguerreotypes to name a few.

Well worth a flip through if you like old photographs. Makes me miss film.
