Unusual versions of Kodak's Vest Pocket camera exist in colorful forms, like this purple and turquoise example designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. The camera, designed to be only one inch thick when folded, has an extending lens and shutter that pull out on struts called "lazy tongs." It made exposures of 1 x 2 ½ inches and enlargements could be made to postcard size.
