Publishing screen caps in print.How to properly give credit?

PostSat Dec 30, 2017 4:12 am

I am printing a book early next year and part of it will show examples of how stage magic influenced some early films. A few screen caps from DVDs will be used.

All of the films are from the 1890s - 1910s and public domain. For example "Humorous Phases of Funny Faces" (1906).

How to I give proper credit to the video companies for each image?

There would not be mentions of specific DVD titles because, obviously, decades from now they would be impossible to find.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps below the screen image, the description would end with "Courtesy Vitagraph".

Example: Below an image would read. "J.Stuart Blackton's animated depiction of a circus clown. Courtesy Vitagraph".
