The Lighting Bible is a remarkable book, gives you an insight into the "realm of lighting". It stimulates creativity by exploring a large variety of approaches and helps you to develop original ideas advising you on how to exploit lighting in different ways and environments.
It's an indispensable tool for interior designers and a stimulating book for anyone willing to transform a house into a piece of art.

As an electrician I found this book to be a real eye opener (no pun intended), there was so much about lighting design that I was not aware of. The tips on how to light different rooms are well thought out and helpful. The technical stuff is good but could have been a little more detailed for my own liking but was still accurate and well preented. This is an eaasy book to use with lots of good quick reference info available. It really made me realise how little is taught to electricains about lighting design and also how poor the lighting design on most new and refurbished properties is.
A must for any sparks out there and a great source book for homeowners and interior designers.

A friend of mine told me that there was a new lighting design book out so I bought it as we are about to refurbish our flat.

On the evening it arrived I had a quick look at it while I was sat next to my husband who was watching TV. I lost count of the number of times I asked him to pause what he was watching so that he could look at the `I love that' pictures!

This book is excellent; it is a perfect combination of inspiration and practicality. I love the way it is laid out, particularly the `do and don't.' part. I am very pleased that my friend told me about it. I would recommend it to anybody.

This is a good book that has a lot of information and has a ring binding but the book is small 20 cm x 16cm , this in its self isnt a problem but the type is so small I can hardly read it & I am not an old man I am still in my middle 40s

As ever PRINTED IN CHINA ! as an English light designer working in london Lucy Martin should demand her books are printed in England

Lately I have become very interested in the technical and creative aspects of interior design. I have a thing for beautiful lamps and lights. I wanted to improve my understanding of lighting design options so I could do things properly, creatively and impart my personal touch to my lighting projects.

This book fulfilled all my needs and expectations. It is quite comprehensive and in-depth. It covers a wide variety of lighting options. It starts with basic principles and then steadily focuses on specific options. All concepts are accompanied by beautiful, topical photos that make it much easier to understand the pros and cons of that particular design option.

Highly recommended for an easy, quick and effective introduction to the wonderful world of interior design lighting.
