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.
