I was organizing my library of early camera catalogues and was struck by the beauty of some of the covers. Presented here are examples with dates of (left to right) 1903, 1908, and 1909.
These beautifully rendered covers depicting women (as an effort to expand the camera market) started appearing on the Rochester Optical Company's Premo Camera catalogues in 1903 and continued into the early 1920s. IMO, each cover stands on its own in terms of artistic merit.
