Format: Paperback
This book will be valuable for the amateur and professional alike.It's splendidly illustrated and the photos of scenic drops,scrims,and translucencies show some first-rate work. Best of all this book is by two WORKING professionals who not only know what they're doing but also have the ability to cogently and effectively communicate the multiple ways scenic art is produced.The two authors are not "bookish theorics" as Shakespeare would put it, but accomplished pros who are out there doing it! A must for anyone who's interested in becoming a scenic artist or simply wants to paint their school or community theatre production in a more effective, efficient, and beautiful way.

As a working scenic artist far from the lights of broadway, (or even a theater department that teaches scene painting) I find this book to be one of the most helpful in my library. Step by step information on materials and techniques are easy to use. I often get ideas for solving scenic problems just by browsing. Thanks for finally writing a book just for scenics.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly excellent book for scenic painters. It covers all the basics, gives a good historical context and a smart look at the "biz". This is not a retread of some hack mural painting text, it's an excellent source and guide for the person who would like to paint scenery for the theatre.

Format: Paperback
Despite the title, this book contains only ONE colour plate, and hardly any visual graphics depicting scenic techniques.
