    Original Colorama posters

    Today, Sam Campanero one of the Kodak Colorama photographers asked me to make a post for him.

    He has approximately 100 colorama posters, 16" x 36" that he is willing to sell as numbered autographed personalized editions. This particular poster is the famous baby Colorama with the group of babies.

    If there is sufficient response, he might be able to make other Colorama images available. He has been given Kodak's permission for the sale of this particular image for the present.

    He has tentatively set the price at $100 plus postage and handling.

    Your responses would be appreciated. Based on response in this thread, Sam will either go ahead, or not. If the response is great enough he will attempt to make other Colorama images available.

    For those interested, Sam was featured in a recent PBS special on the Colorama photography in which he and others discussed the ULF cameras used in this work.

    Here's an interesting site that discusses the history of the Coloramas and has several samples, though this photo doesn't seem to be shown. http://www.kodak.com/US/en/corp/features/coloramas/

    Are these posters lithographs, or color prints, or inkjet?

    At this point, I have no idea. Sorry. I'll try to get the information. I believe they are lithographs though.

    I have a rather maternal friend who it'd make a great gift for, and if not that I'd be proud to have something like that on my wall anyway, so I'd buy one, yeah.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    The exact poster dimensions are 11" x 39". Sam sent me those this AM. I have asked him what kind of print it is.

    Alex,

    I just had a look at your scans of 1970s and 80s photography adverts, great stuff.

    Keep up the good work,

    Tom.

    Thanks for this interesting link.

    I must admit until now I only had a faint idea of these images: very, very large; Central Station; Kodak playing on US-American values…
    Though, looking at those images I guess some of them could have hung in an European station.

    bye from Old Europe
