Cartomania in Homes & Antiques magazine

September author Paul Frecker is featured in the May issue of Homes & Antiques talking all things Cartomania and collecting.

Cartomania: Photography and Celebrity in the Nineteenth Century is the first book for British readers on the Victorian photographic craze for portrait cards, cartes de visite.

A lavishly illustrated and beautifully designed insight into Victorian society, Cartomania publishes on 13 June 2024 and is a treasure trove of fascinating Victorian lives and stories, with idiosyncratic charm for the general reader and a wealth of detail and research for anyone interested in photography or the late nineteenth century.

Previously a highly successful stylist within the fashion industry, for the last twenty years Paul Frecker has been a dealer in nineteenth-century photography, specialising in cartes de visite. Find out more about his work on Instagram: @19thcenturyphotos.
