9780859896658: The Great Art Of Light And Shadow: Archaeology of the Cinema (Exeter Studies in Film History)

Widely regarded by historians of the early moving picture as the best work yet published on pre-cinema, The Great Art of Light and Shadow: Archaeology of the Cinema throws light on a fascinating range of optical media from the twelfth century to the turn of the twentieth. First published in French in 1994 and now translated into English, Laurent Mannoni's account projects a broad picture of the subject area now known as 'pre-cinema'. Starting from the earliest uses of the camera obscura in astronomy and entertainment, Mannoni discusses, among many other devices, the invention and early years of the magic lantern in the seventeenth century, the peepshows and perspective views of the eighteenth century, and the many weird and wonderful nineteenth-century attempts to recreate visions of real life in different ways and forms. This fully-illustrated and accessible account of a strange mixture of science, magic, art and deception introduces to an English-speaking readership many aspects of pre-cinema history from other European countries.

About the Author:

Laurent Mannoni is Curator of the equipment collection of the Cinémathèque Française. Richard Crangle is a freelance researcher and writer and formerly Assistant Director, Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Cinema and Popular Culture, University of Exeter.

Review:

“Richard Crangle’s technical understanding is evident throughout – and the result is peerless   . . . It has taken a great many years to create a widespread understanding that screen techniques did not start with 1895 and the Lumières.  In this contribution to that understanding Laurent Mannoni tackles, with resounding success, a myriad of related media techniques, spanning half a millennium. To quote David Robinson’s Foreward, this is 'no cold, dry, academic study, but a pulsing, vital chronicle'.” –The New Magic Lantern Journal, Vol. 9, No. 1, Winter 2001

(The New Magic Lantern Journal)
