Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a scholarly, in-depth study of an important aspect of museum exhibitions today... Highly recommended.

(Choice)

With this volume, Griffiths has established herself as one of the most ambitious scholars now straddling the various fields that comprise visual studies.

(Randolph Lewis Museum Anthropology Review 1900-01-00)

Beautifully illustrated... fascinating... engaging.

(Malgorzata Rymsza-Pawlowska Technology and Culture)

Review

This volume is a stunning work, rich in research, sharp in its own analysis of that research, and far-reaching in its implications for further scholarship in cinema studies, pre-cinema historiography, visual culture, and cultural studies in general.

(Dana Polan, professor of cinema studies, New York University)

Format: Hardcover
I'm a museologist and I made a PhD about the immersive exhibit and this is the book that I was waiting for...

The book is so well organized :
1) She uses a language very easy to understand;
2) she always explains her logic at the begining of every chapter, so it's very easy to follow her.
3) The references, the research, the citations are... golden bars! Congratulation for the Quebec exemples!
What else to say, I just really shiver down MY spine during the reading.
If you are interessed by : Museum, Immersion, visitor experience... It's a MUST!!!

Format: Hardcover
As an emerging museum professional I have found this book to be invaluable. It was the spring board for my thesis research and I continue to turn back to it for both reference and inspiration.

If you're the kind of person who loves to read about arcane and obscure exhibition devices like panoramas, pepper's ghosts, or dioramas then you will love this book. If you want to know more about IMAX got it's start and the history of cinematic devices as both entertainment and teaching tools then you will love this book. If you work in a creative field and want inspiration for how to exhibit your work or to know more about how people in the museum world think and approach the presentation of media then you will love this book.

It's a shame that more scholarly books that are this comprehensive can't also be as entertaining, but Griffiths manages to take a subject matter that is obscure at best and weaves wonder in to her reader- a wonder which she obviously has herself.
