A Million Pictures

The magic lantern was the most important visual entertainment and means of instruction across nineteenth-century Europe. However, despite its pervasiveness across multiple scientific, educational and popular contexts, magic lantern slides remain under-researched. The project 'A Million Pictures' addresses the sustainable preservation of this massive, untapped heritage resource. The project is led by Sarah Dellmann and Prof. Frank Kessler.
