|From Fancyclopedia 1 ca 1944|
|There were some paste-in fotos in the old Fourteen Leaflet, and a pages of half-tones in an issue of FM, but fotografs were seen little of until 1939, when Le Zombie, Speer, and others began pushing them.
Ackerman's Assorted Services lithografing service opened up new possibilities, but the most usual manner of reproduction is still fotograpic. Tucker introduced a method of reproducing by mimeo from a half-tone cut. Fotos were most often of fans and fan activities, but also include table-top fantastic scenes, shots off the screen of fantasy movies, and whatever else may be of interest. An unsuccessful attempt was made to institute an FAPA Fotograhy Laureate.
