Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema | Giovanna Fossati

6 april 2016

We normally think of early film as being black and white, but the first color cinematography appeared as early as the first decade of the twentieth century.

This visually stunning book brings a treasure trove of early color film images into print form for viewers to enjoy, examine and dream over their forgotten splendor. Drawing on the early film archives of EYE Filmmuseum, the authors have carefully selected and reproduced frames from the original films made before World War I, presenting their fascinating and often surprising images and hues. This gorgeous book has been designed to engage readers of all ages and backgrounds.
