Product description

Review

"The influence of the series and the book . . . was enormous . . . It opened up for general attention to areas of cultural study that are now commonplace." --Geoff Dyer

"Berger has the ability to cut right through the mystification of the professional art critics . . . He is a liberator of images: and once we have allowed the paintings to work on us directly, we are in a much better position to make a meaningful evaluation." --Peter Fuller, Arts Review

"Over the past sixty years, the great John Berger -- art critic, essayist, screenwriter, novelist, poet, and artist -- has made immeasurable contributions to our understanding of culture and politics, never more potently than in Ways of Seeing." -The Village Voice

About the Author

John Berger was born in London in 1926. He is well known for his novels & stories as well as for his works of nonfiction, including several volumes of art criticism. His first novel, "A Painter of Our Time", was published in 1958, & since then his books have included the novel "G.", which won the Booker Prize in 1972. In 1962 he left Britain permanently, and he lives in a small village in the French Alps.

I was expecting a far better book. The illustrations are tiny and badly printed and the font size is totally weird and so difficult to read. I would have thought I had received by chance a bad printed copy, an experiment?, if not for the fact that the dishonest seller I bought it from shipped me and charged me for two copies and never replied to my claims. So I have even an extra copy of a poor quality and uninspiring edition which I cannot even give away as a present.

Perhaps it's me but I was disappointed with this book in many ways. The quality of the book is bad, illustrations are too small, much of the text is in bold and poorly presented and while the content is interesting it is not that exciting. Ibadan ordered another of Berger's books but cancelled it.

One of the best books that one could ever read when it comes to understanding visual codes & semiotics, print advertisements and the rational behind them. Great edition, full of practical examples with pictures inside. However, the paper quality inside is cheap and the pictures are B&W. If you don't mind that, it's a great book.

the type is smudged in places and the pictures included are not clearly defined, the book looks as though minaturised and detail lost as a consequence
