In this visually stunning book on vintage cameras, photographer Ellwand, who is also well known as a children's book author, provides a highly personal history and celebration of camera design...Ellwand provides an enthusiastic, idiosyncratic look at photography's vintage history, enhanced with gorgeous and charming images documenting both elegant camera design and a photographer's talented eye.

From the double lens to the pinhole camera, the approaches to capturing light on film are breathtaking. Retro Photo is a visual delight.
