Stage Lighting Design
With hundreds of diagrams, photographs, and light plots, Pilbrow clearly presents the theory and practice of the art of stage lighting.
"Stage Lighting Design" covers the complete history, theory and - above all - practice of lighting design. It contains 450 black and white half tones, 60 colour photos and innumerable diagrams, lighting plots etc.
The history of lighting design brings the reader a better understanding of the age-old quest for improved lighting on the stage. The section of war stories and interviews with many well-known professionals reveals the joys and tribulations of working in this demanding art. The mechanics section is a survey of the vast range of technical systems that the working designer will need to be familiar with in a theatre.
