About the Book
On 22 June 2009 Eastman Kodak Company announced that it would retire Kodachrome Colour Film, concluding its 74-year run as a photographic icon.
To mark the end of Kodachrome 64 photographer Phil Coomes set out to publish a-photo-a-day to Flickr, the photographic sharing website, for 64 weeks.
The final set of 448 photographs can all be found within this volume.
Profits from this book will be donated to the BBC's Children In Need appeal.
