Editorial Reviews

Review

"Designers and pop culture aficionados will appreciate this rich tale of how recorded music was marketed... The Art of Sound is a singular and comprehensive history that makes visual the capturing and playback of sound, a fitting tribute to those earliest recordings made by marks warbling through soot."
Print Magazine

"A beautifully illustrated history of sound recording, reproduction devices, and processes from the 1857 phonautograph to the present day's streaming audio. This predominately visual book is eye candy for the audiophile, but will be of interest to scholars of the material culture of sound, audio historians, collectors, and any individual interested in the history and technology of recording. Recommended."
