4.0 out of 5 stars Great insite into the world of Polaroid, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Instant: The Story of Polaroid (Hardcover)
Very easy and enjoyable to read book on the history of Polaroid, not a great level of technical depth with regards to the films but then again, do we really want to understand how the little sheet of magic really works?

If you are interested in Polaroids then this is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a writer -but this a outstanding book., 23 Jan 2014

This review is from: Instant: The Story of Polaroid (Hardcover)
I like taking pictures and I am certainly not a writer, but regarding this book - excellent to outstanding. Published in 2012 this is a detailed and brilliantly illustrated book with a balance of history, design, technology and images. These images range from Ansel Adams to Edward Weston and manages a image of Lady Gaga from 2011.

I confess a Polaroid passion having taken first prize in the magazine Photo Technique way way back and receiving a SX70 Alpha and kit as a prize.. a very soft spot remains for the design and the images I achieved. Now I use the zink for prints - and the grandchildren love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 27 Jan 2013

This review is from: Instant: The Story of Polaroid (Hardcover)
An easy to read history of the Polaroid company. Sadly It doesn't get very technical with the chemistry or optics, but otherwise it is extremely good read. And the book itself is very attractive and contains some great pictures.

Engaging account of the pitfalls of Polaroid and technology companies in general. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Had you heard of the Polaroid instant video system released after the video cassette ? I didn't think so !
