The Year in Colors

Beautiful educational book about the color photography in agfacolor.
With special insight on difficulties regarding natural light during the year (Spring, Sommer, Autumn, Winter),
tungsten light (nitraphot), color cast, landscape photos, photos in the mountains, still life, nude photos etc.

The photos in this book were taken with a Zeiss Contax II in Austria in the late 1930s or early 1940s.

as a German response to Technicolor and Kodachrome!
