Eyewitnessing: The Use of Images as Historical Evidence

£14.99

Product description

Some small, faint marks to the dust jacket. Minimal signs of wear to the book itself. Pages are tightly bound, clean, bright and free from notes. Overall, the book is in very good + condition.

This text evaluates the place of images among other kinds of historical evidence. By reviewing the many varieties of images by region, period and medium, and looking at the pragmatic uses of images (e.g.. the Bayeux Tapestry, an engraving of a printing press, a reconstruction of a building), the author sheds light on our assumption that these practical uses are "reflections" of specific historical meanings and influences. He also shows how this assumption can be problematic.
