Photo Catalog Pasteup Board for Catalog RA
Date of Creation1950-1973
Administrative/Biographical HistoryBob Mizer created index sheets for marketing his photographic catalog. He began by printing the available images, then cropped off the borders and pasted them onto a large sheet of cardboard. Each image was assigned a letter and the entire group was assigned an alphanumeric code. This master index board was then re-photographed with his 4"x5" camera and contact prints of the same size were created and distributed to his customer mailing list. The resulting thumbnail images were about .5" in size from which his customers would select their purchases with the catalog code, and request finished photos from Mizer.
Scope & ContentCatalog Board with pasted photographs of images available for purchase. Inscriptions of model names and film titles, as well as cataloging information is listed in black grease pencil. Further notes like dates and models may be seen in light pencil.
