Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the compact camera. This sprightly tale of curiosity and determination puts the spotlight on the inventive young man who made photographers of all of us, one improvement at a time.

On this date, September 4, in 1888, George Eastman registered the trademark Kodak. You can learn more here.

The Eastman House (http://www.eastmanhouse.org/) was one of my favorite places to visit growing up. There is an area of the house (the basement?) that shows the evolution of the camera. It’s terrific. If you get to Rochester, you should stop in.

Thanks for the review. I can’t wait to see this one. And I agree–there has been a lot of wonderful nonfiction this year.
