Free Society Poster Available for Download

As reported in the latest Daguerreian Society Quarterly, Board Member Carlos Vertanessian and the graphic designer Fabio Massolo have created a new poster to promote the Society and inspire appreciation of early photographic images and technologies.

The poster features a dazzling display of 19th-century photographs and early photographic literature, drawn from Carlos’s own collection and those of several other Society members.

Two high-resolution versions of the poster are available for free download and self-printing.

A3 version - 11.7 x 16.5 inches / 297 x 420 mm
A4 version - 8.3 x 11.7 inches / 210 x 297 mm

To print at home, download the A4 version and select “fit to paper” in the settings under “scale.”

To print on A3 or Tabloid/Ledger paper at a copy center such as FedEx, UPS or Staples, download the file to your computer or a portable storage device (i.e., flash drive) and then upload the file online or take the drive to a copy store. Be sure to tell them to fit to paper. You might also want to choose a heavier-than-usual paper stock.

The goal of this combination of images was to achieve a visually attractive depiction of the wide scope of interests — scholarly, collecting, historical — that The Daguerreian Society covers, from the invention of photography until the end of the 19th century.

Looking at the poster, how many photographs can you recognize? Can you spot works by Julia Margaret Cameron or Francis Frith? Who made that lunar stereo? Which pioneer of photography appears twice?

Happy hunting!
