Unpacking UCL’s Magic Lantern Slide Collections

Nice article on UCL’s blog from Margaux Bricteux, UCL student intern at the Grant Museum. She has been delving into dusty wooden boxes to clean, sort and audit thousands of lantern slides. Margaux also includes a link to a rather wonderful 1947 film on how to make handmade lantern slides, courtesy Indiana University.
