Kodakery, "A Magazine For Amateur Photographers", was published from September, 1913 through 1932, at the price of 5 per copy. All purchasers of a Kodak or Brownie camera received a 1-year free subscription.

The magazine was diminutive in size: 5"x7", and typically 32 pages in length. For many, the magazine's unpretentious size was part of it's charm.

Kodakery was typically filled with how-to articles, a touch of photo-essay, always a centerfold photo feature, and -- of course -- advertisements for the latest Kodak products. To Kodak's credit, Kodakery seldom had more than 6 pages of advertising, and never had display advertising intermixed with article content.

Over the years, the magazine format remained constant.  However, the cover design changed a bit. Click here to see the evolution of the Kodakery cover design.

When Kodakery ceased publication in 1932, all current subscribers were sent the book "The Way To Better Pictures".

Kodakery is published today as a Kodak Employee newsletter, and is only distributed internally.  The "Kodak Collector's Page" was featured in the May 6, 1998 issue.
