Friday Photo Quiz

Oh, that’s just so easy. To win, you’ve got to also explain in 10 words or less why this book is historically significant. Good luck!—David Schonauer

We received a few correct answers to last week’s quiz question. (The big camera was used to photograph a steam train onto photo plates measuring 4 ½ by 8 feet.)

This week we turn to a photographic pioneer, William Henry Fox Talbot. Here you see a copy of his book "The Pencil of Nature." The subject of the book was:
A) Pencils
B) Nature
C) The Calotype

Oh, that's just so easy. To win, you've got to also explain in 10 words or less why this book is historically significant. Good luck!
