"This practical guide by interior design expert Barty Phillips is a valuable reference book, it introduces the history of lighting in general and then focuses on lighting designs from the discovery and development of the light bulb in Victorian times. It is divided into eras (e.g. seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, post-war, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s) acting as a social history while highlighting the important styles and designers in each era and the reasoning behind the shapes and colours used. There are pointers to recognizing (sic) what is a true antique and what is a reproduction, on repairing and maintaining lamps including ceiling and wall lights, table lamps and floor lamps, with ideas on how to use vintage lighting in your own home."--Dust jacket.

Protecting the environment should be a priority of every theatrical production, but it can be challenging to mount an environmentally-friendly show with limited time, resources, and information. A Practical Guide to Greener Theatre: Introduce Sustainability Into Your Productions not only gives you the information you need to make greener decisions, but provides you with practical, workable solutions. You will learn how to assess and improve every production area – from costuming and painting, lighting and technical direction, to administrative offices and the rehearsal process. Checklists, examples of successful strategies, and step-by-step instructions will show you how to identify areas where manageable, sustainable changes can make your productions greener, and advice from working professionals, with experience greening their own productions, will leave you confident that your processes are environmentally sound. Even non-technical people who find themselves responsible for supervising productions will find green solutions that can be instituted with a staff of volunteers or students. Remember: every step toward sustainability is a step forward. Discover small fixes that will make your theatre productions greener. Examine ways to introduce greener practices in the design, execution, and strike process. Explore how introducing sustainability into your theatre productions can save your company time and money. Learn how sustainability and safety intersect to help protect your workers and volunteers.
