Polaroid is a quintessential example of a company that rose to supreme cult status, only to fall to a near non-existence save for THE IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT‘s swift and timely revival. Such a story of business is worth noting down for future reference, which is exactly what New York Magazine editor Christopher Bonanos did with his Instant: The Story of Polaroid.
