The book offers the first review of coloured and colour photographic production on Slovenian soil from its origins in mid-19th century until 1945. At first it concerns various types of colouring, toning and monochromatic techniques, whereas in early 20th century the first genuine colour images appear, i.e. transparencies made with a standardised additive process called Autochrome plate. It includes introductory paper, a bibliography, a catalogue of works, and colour reproductions. The book is available in Slovene with an extensive summary in English.
