Fantasia of Color Postcard Box

20,00

“I could gaze at the images in this book for hours. They are as fascinating as illuminated manuscripts or magic lantern slides.” – Martin Scorsese

Eye Filmmuseum presents a selection of 50 color illustrated postcards from the visually stunning book Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema, a treasure trove of early color film images from the Eye collection.

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 elegant postcard box features illustrations on the outside as well as on the inside, can be closed with an elastic band, and contains 50 illustrated postcards printed on heavy weight, matte paper. Noted on the back of each individual postcard is the film from which the still is originated.

Eye Film Museum

Eye is sometimes called ‘the cinematic memory of the Netherlands’. And in all modesty, that title is no exaggeration.

The Dutch national museum for film, located on Amsterdam’s IJ harbour, manages more than 54.000 films from all genres. The collection represents an outstanding sample of film history, from classics and blockbusters to cult films. But Eye does not only focus on the past: it also closely follows the latest developments in film by organizing new acquisitions, programmes, and debates. The building is open every day for anyone who is interested in film and film culture. Visitors are welcome in four cinemas, an exhibition space, a floor dedicated to educational activities, a shop, and a bar-restaurant.

Eye is internationally acclaimed for its knowledge of and expertise in the field of film restoration, research, and education. The organization has 185 employees who do their very best to make everything you would want to know about film easily accessible. For young and old, for film enthusiasts and professionals, and from constantly changing perspectives, Eye focuses on film as an art form, as entertainment, and as part of digital visual culture.
