The Collection of Photography and Print Room numbers around 7,000 items which originate from the period between the 14th century and the 1930s. The basic fund of this Collection consists of the works created on paper using various techniques, whereas its key collections – manuscripts and printed books, photographs and postcards – were formed systematically so that they offer a complete picture of the development of the mass media and reproductive art techniques in Serbia. The Collection also keeps photo albums and photographic equipment, book illustration equipment, graphics, miniature portraits, drawings and icons. The manuscript <i>Belgrade Armorial II</i> and icon of <i>St. Demetrius</i> stand out as the artefacts of extraordinary cultural and artistic value, while the collection of oriental manuscripts, collection of photographs by Milan Jovanović and surrealist photographs, as well as collection of designs for utility objects drawn by Anastas Jovanović, one of the pioneers of Serbian applied art and design, stand out as artistically significant units.
