If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this photo there last week. It's no secret that I am a sucker for old photos - but dare I say I am equally smitten with how they are presented? And nothing is more lush in presentation than old Daguerreotype/Tintype cases. Ornate velvet, copper frames, Gutta Percha cases - they were made to show importance and value. And if you happen to pull out the photograph you will find a treasure in the printed advertising from the studio in the back of the case. I have hoarded these for years with the intention of creating small collages inside.
If only I could actually find the time to act on all of my good intentions!
