Product Details

This is a working camera that pops up from the pages of a book made by Kelli Anderson.

  • Made in China

The book explains and demonstrates how a humble piece of paper can produce a photograph.

This book includes:

  • Paper folded into a working 4x5" camera
  • A lightproof bag
  • 5 sheets of photo-paper "film"
  • Development instructions (use household ingredients or photo chemicals)
  • A satisfying demonstration of the connection between design & science / structure & function
  • A companion lightmeter app for iPhone (but any light meter will do if set to ISO 10 and f/228)


Designed in Brooklyn

Kelli Anderson is an artist, designer, a TEDx speaker, and author of two interactive books based in Brooklyn. Kelli's work appeared in New Yorker, The New York Times, Wired, etc.

"This Book is a Camera" is produced by MoMA in China and shipped by Kelli from Brooklyn.
