“I could gaze at the images in this book for hours. They are as fascinating as illuminated manuscripts or magic lantern slides.” – Martin Scorsese
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. In this visually stunning book, the editors present a treasure trove of early color film images from the archives of EYE Film Institute Netherlands, bringing to life their rich hues and forgotten splendour.
