With the discontinuation of Kodachrome film and the ceasing of film processing at the last remaining Kodachrome developer in December 2010, photographers both professional and amateur mourned the end of an era. This project will feature 20 images from the final rolls of Kodachrome ever developed in all their retro-colour glory, in our winning Polaroid Notes format.
The poignancy of yet another legendary film format's discontinuation and resultant nostalgia for its inimitable look and feel makes this a worthy successor to the runaway success of Polaroid Notes.; Kodak discontinued Kodachrome film, and the last lab that processed it stopped doing so at the end of 2010. .Not only did these events generate a lot of press, but they also added serious fuel to the fires of nostalgia already burning for colour film photography.; The images in this, the new Polaroid Notes, are charming, full of nostalgia and right on trend.; Following in the footsteps of Polaroid Notes runaway success these notecards are a surefire hit.
