Book News Annotation:

Widely popular during the early 20th century, "real photo" postcards differed from their printed counterparts in that they were produced chemically from a negative on photographic paper. Aimed at collectors, historians, curators, and interested general readers, this richly illustrated volume provides a broad overview of the genre. Seven chapters cover such topics as photographers and careers; categories for collectors; and photo postcard care and preservation. Bogdan (emeritus, Syracuse U.) is a columnist for The Postcard Collector magazine, and Weseloh maintains an extensive (5000-plus) collection of historically important postcards.

This book was a godsend! I've been trying to do research on a real photo postcard collection for a museum, and this book answered all of my questions, provided insightful advice on dating the photos, and was a great read! I would recommend this to anyone looking to know more about this amazing niche of photo history.
