Lao Postcards by Alfred Raquez is a first attempt to bring together the 166 postcards that were produced in six series of 25 each as Collection Raquez and 16 out-of-series postcards produced by Decoly as Cliché Raquez and later also under his brand La Pagode. Raquez was the first traveler who systematically made photos in Laos around 1900. He made seven trips in Laos; the longest journey was seven months. The result was his record Pages Laotiennes, available now in English translation as Around Laos in 1900: A Photographer's Adventures. A pictorial book with only his several hundred photos on Laos is available as volume 2 of Around Laos in 1900. Raquez organized the Lao Pavilion at the 1906 Marseille Exhibition, showing his large collection of textiles and artifacts gathered from around Laos.
