Description - Cameras in Disguise by John Wade
Throughout the history of photography from its earliest days until the present digital era, an amazing number of cameras have been designed and manufactured to look like some completely different object. During the Second World War, some of these were used for genuine espionage purposes. Others were made for no reason other than to provide photographers with something a little out of the ordinary and many, especially in the later years, were little more than toys. Manya re illustrated and described in this new book and their history makes an often overlooked and fascinating branch of photographic history.
