This camera is one of only a few folding camera manufactured by Spartus, previously the Utility Manufacturing Company. This particular camera was simply known as the Spartus Folding Camera Not a very original name, but the design is still striking and was one of the few folding vest pocket models that this company offered the camera market during this ever evolving company's many years of manufacturing. One of my personal favorites.

This sharp number is one in my series of linoleum letterpress prints of vintage cameras. Each of the prints in this series is inspired by cameras in my personal collection and is painstakingly carved by hand at life size with as much detail as my tools and the linoleum will allow. I then typeset the name of the camera in Cheltingham Condensed 18pt. and printed each on an antique Vandercook proofing press on 80lb. Cougar natural (off white) paper in black ink.

The printed area measures approximately 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" (not including type) on 8 1/2" x 11" paper.

If you are interested in purchasing multiples or samplings of any of my prints please convo me first so that I can reserve a collection with adjusted shipping for you. All prints will be signed and will be shipped flat with insurance.
