About

Moving Picture Reprint Series publishes rare texts, pamphlets and ephemera from the earliest days of cinema in book form.  Each is supplemented with illustrations, notes and original research.

All are filled with extremely rare materials that are scanned and output to high resolution TIF files and can go from gentle retouching to major reconstruction.

Our mission is to make forgotten areas of lost early cinema history available again.  For the first time in over a century.

Moving Picture Reprint Series is operated from Waterford, Michigan.
