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.
This is my first foray into pastels, and this product has exceeded my expectations. It was delivered promptly and in good condition. I'm very happy with the colors included but it has left me wanting even more colors!
