300 pages in A4 format, text and titles in french.
More than 1200 illustrations, drawings and tables.
Cameras, photographic lenses, accessories and documentations are presentated logically and clearly, with full indexes.

 

FOCAgraphie, by Jean-Loup Princelle and Daniel Auzeloux, is the definitive Guide for the FOCA lover.

Summary

It will be particulary appreciated by the «iconomecanophile» who is enamoured of these beautiful French cameras. The FOCA models PF and U were the French answer to the Leica, and reigned supreme in the hearts of French photographers for two decades. Between the covers of FOCAgraphie you will find detailed coverage of the Standard and the PF, with their screwmount lenses, the mythical FOCAsix, the FOCA U series with their bayonet-mount lenses, and the FOCAflex and FOCAsport models as well. This book will take you back to the days of the street photogaphers, to Kodachrome 25, and the black and white prints, that you waited for so impatiently at your local drugstore. Those days are not so far off.

FOCAgraphie in glorious color, with its 800 photographic images and reproductions of period literature, is a photo historian's book «the way you wish were all made.» It is the quality standard by which all such volumes will be judged.
