Kodak was one of the few makers that made an effort to create striking images on their consumer catalogs. Here's a selection of four (left-to-right): 1888, 1901, 1907, and 1908.

It's also interesting to see how the marketing folks kept updating the artwork themes over the years. These covers are from the Kodak Catalog Project - refer to the following CW URL for more information: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/information-wants-to-be-free-56-years-of-kodak-camera-catalogs-now-available/

Stay tuned ... more to come.

    rob-- are you familiar with "Kodakery" a small magazine published by Kodak in the 40s (maybe earlier/ later)?

    I am looking for a specific copy of it and cannot find it.

    Hi Scott ... yes, I know Kodakery but do not collect it. LMK the specific copy of interest and I'll check with some Kodak specialists.

    THANKS!

    It is a WW2 era one. I have a US Flag (shot up in the Gela landing) and banner from LCI- 220 (the LCI was later featured on a COVER of LIFE). The sailors documentation on the items included a "Thank You" from Kodakery for pictures sent into the magazine and I believe it mentioned using the photos.

    I am just trying to get more complete documentation.

    I will send you specifics after I go through the grouping.

    Thanks again!
