Photos of the book

Happy Birthday Pierre! (Who would have been  177 years old on January 26!) I made this book, with 113 of Pierre’s photos that I printed from his glass plate negatives, in the order that he had them organized, with the captions in his own words. It includes a 16-page memoir he wrote in 1902 about his work at Du Pont, along with some family photos etc. Original source material and “just the facts, ma’am!” was the mantra for this book.
