Learn about the weird and wonderful cameras that made history in Retromania The Funkiest Cameras of Photography's Golden Age, a Focal Press paperback book by Lawrence Harvey. This volume covers the innovative designs of these vintage cameras that brought photography to the masses, changing it from a hobby of the wealthy into an art and pastime for all to enjoy. As you discover these famous cameras, you will understand why the 20th Century was known as the century of "the people's camera."

As a bonus, rare original ads and manuals accompany each retro model featured in the book. Retromania is the first volume to look at every significant "people's camera" to come along since Kodak's Box Brownie launched the photographic revolution way back in 1908.
