3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Norman Bel Geddes Designs America accompanies a landmark exhibition exploring the career of Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958), one of the 20th century's foremost theatrical and industrial designers. This companion volume explores Bel Geddes's life and career in comprehensive detail through nearly 100 projects, ranging from streamlined airplanes, ships, and cars, to stage sets, appliances, and much more. Both the exhibition and the book bring together never-before-seen drawings, models, photographs, and films drawn from the Ransom Center's Bel Geddes collection. He is perhaps best known for his Futurama display for the General Motors Highways and Horizons exhibit at the New York World's Fair of 1939-40, which to this day remains a useful model for city planning and design. The exhibition is curated by Donald Albrecht, who contributed the book's introduction and serves as its editor. In addition to Albrecht, who has written the introduction, twenty scholars have contributed essays. The exhibition I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America opens in September 2012 at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, and will travel to the Museum of the City of New York."--Note de l'éditeur
Viva la dance : the beginnings of ciné-dance( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dance and film have shared the aspiration to creatively sculpt motion and time. Some of the first films ever made featured Annabelle's skirt dance, hand-painted in glowing colours. Isadora Duncan and Ruth St Denis' innovations found their way into Diana the huntress (1916) and The soul of the cypress (1920). Highly cinematic renditions of dance evolved in Stella Simon's Hände (1928), Hector Hoppin's La joie de vivre (1934) and Busby Berkeley's "Don't say goodnight" from Wonder Bar (1934). In counterpoint, ciné-dance experiments by Ralph Steiner, Mary Ellen Bute, Oskar Fischinger, Douglass Crockwell, Slavko Vorkapich and Norman McLaren dispensed with actual dancers in favour of colour, shape, line and form choreographed into abstract light-play
