Dear List Members,
Few years after publication, Early Visual Media is pleased to announce the important three volume set 'A History of Early Film' selected by Stephen Herbert.
A similar set, 'A History of Television' is also available form Routledge.
On the latter webpage you will also find the previously announced 'A History of Pre-Cinema'
These are great resources for academic researchers, university & museum libraries and private collectors.
More Routledge encyclopaedic works, 'Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography' & 'Encyclopedia of twentieth-Century Photography' where announced several years ago and can be found on the subsequent page.
The new book page, Related Popular Arts, is announcing an important study on the 'The Victorian Marionette Theatre'.
The additional page, DVD, CD-Rom & Video's, announces the interactive DVD 'KINOAUTOMAT, One Man and his House'.
While Kinoautomat was created in Czechoslovakia by a talented team in 1966-67, it is generally considered to be the brainchild of Rad˙z Cincera.
It was a performance, which combined a projected film with interventions from two stage moderators, which was shown for the first time at the Czechoslovak Pavilion at Expo '67 Montreal, where it ran for six months as a one-hour show.
Using a specially constructed voting system, the audience members can change the trajectory of the film at several key moments by pressing red or green buttons.
The direction voted by the majority would then be followed by the projection team.
