Scenes in a Library


Armstrong, Carol

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998

SKU: 28133

In Scenes in a Library, Carol Armstrong explores the experimental moment, at the inception of the new medium, when the word came to haunt the photographic image, and the forty or so years—roughly from the 1840s to the 1880s—during which the photographic image alternately resisted and became assimilated to the printed page. Armstrong's emphasis is on British books.
