Brimming with theory and technical information, Interior Lighting for Designers, Fourth Edition is an invaluable reference for both students and design professionals.
Where previous editions focused on the mechanics of producing light, this one emphasizes an architectural approach to the design of light. Its basic tenet is that lighting design is a methodical procedure, not a mysterious art form. Written to serve both as a textbook for architecture and design students and as a manual for professionals, it covers perception, psychology, color, electricity, and photometrics. Includes b&w illustrations, 21 color plates examining the mechanics of the color spectrum, and an 18-table appendix. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
