Making things look different 23 Dec. 2013
By Chris Sterling - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This anthology of articles published during and after World War I is a valuable collection about the "dazzle" painting of both merchant and naval ships to make them less visible to submarines. The process was based on the theory of visually breaking up a ship's silhouette to make it harder to track how fast the vessel was moving and in what direction it was sailing. Behrens, author of several books about camouflage, has gathered and annotated the articles, and added numerous other illustrations to demonstrate how the process worked--and its results. A number of then well-known artists participated in developing dazzle designs, most of which had to be tailor made for different kinds and sizes of ship. Further, the editor provides what is perhaps the best overall bibliography of published material on camouflage--nearly 40 pages worth. He has done us a service gathering these scattered pieces into one volume. The result is fascinating.
