Product Description


"Visual Delights: II Exhibition and Reception" is an international anthology of papers taken from the successful second Visual Delights conference held at the University of Sheffield in 2002. It brings together a rich vein of material covering many aspects of popular and visual culture in the late Victorian and early Edwardian period. Interdisciplinary in approach, it includes essays on nineteenth century circus performers, early cinema exhibition practice, 'penny dreadfuls', lantern culture, early colour experiments and popular photography. With essays from internationally renowned historians in the fields of early cinema, art history, performance, photography and theatre studies, it offers a wealth of significant new material and demonstrates a variety of approaches to this rich material. The book is lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs, posters, magic lantern slides and engravings and provides a rich visual resource for the further study of nineteenth century visual culture and performance practice.
