Description:
There are many who claim to have invented cinema, but the achievements of Auguste and Louis Lumière stand apart. This collection of letters between the brothers begins in the late 1800s when they became the first to project photographic moving images for a paying audience and ends in 1953 when the invention they famously claimed "had no future" had become the defining visual art form of the 20th Century. Reading like urgent phone calls, these letters convey their excitement as their new invention evolves and the force of its impact is felt. The book includes photos, diagrams, and a preface by Louis Lumière’s grandson Maurice Trarieux-Lumière.
