My good friend, David Cleveland and I have just published 'How Films Were Made And Shown'. It is A4 with 453 pages and 900 illustrations, many in colour. It is quite a heavy tome, 2.5 kgs. Kevin Brownlow on receiving his copy said "the book is not only unputdownable - it is heavy enough to be unpickupable!"
For film archivists and those interested in the technical side of film, there are chapters on How It Worked; The Film Business Gets Going; The 1920s - Time of Change; A Quest For Colour; The 1930s and 40s; New Film, New Colour, New Sound, New Screens of the 1950s and 60s; The Film Laboratory, and Slow Fade Out covering from the 70s to 2015.
If you would like further information please look at my website:http://www.brianprit...e_and_Shown.htm.
Unfortunately the weight makes it rather expensive to ship.
