CARTE -O- MANIA

An exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra focussed on the Carte-de-Visite (CDV).
The exhibition ran from November 2018 to April 2019.

The booklet from this exhibition is a gem. This is a high quality and fun publication. People with an interest in CDV should get hold of a copy. There are 40 pages (small pages) of introduction, then most of the book is taken up with double page entries on the photographers - Australian studios of the period.

Here's a iink to the gallery website on the exhibition.

The book is small back packed with information (19cm high X 11.5cm)

Besides being a gem to own, it could be a great gift for someone  else.

Below is a set of sample pages from the book.
