The Daguerreian Society brings together people from all over the world who are united by a common interest in the history of photography. Members include students and teachers, museum curators and scientists, collectors, dealers, historians, photographers and artists. The Daguerreian Society was formed in 1988 as a group "dedicated to the history, science, and art of the daguerreotype." Daguerreotypes -- the glittering, mirror-like images made by the world's first practical system of photography -- are only one part of what brings members together. Members of the Society are committed to increasing the world's understanding of early photography and its role in history.
It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.
