Light! : the industrial age 1750-1900 : art & science, technology & society by Andreas Blühm( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Of all the revolutionary changes brought about by the Industrial Age perhaps the most extraordinary and far-reaching was the transformation of light. Scientists described its hidden laws to the general public for the first time. Artists found radical ways of depicting it. Inventors found new ways of making it. The lives of ordinary people changed forever as streets, shops, theatres, even their own homes were brilliantly illuminated, first by gas, and then, even more dazzlingly, by electricity." "The story is told here for the first time in its entirety. The book describes the inventions still with us, such as electric light, the microscope and photography, as well as arcane reminders of a vanished world, such as the heliostat, the lithophane and the magic lantern. It portrays a revolution in the arts: the impressionists conjuring up sunlight, Constable redefining daylight, Caspar David Friedrich discovering twilight. And it debates the changing symbolism of light: the meaning of the Enlightenment, the light of God's truth, the nightmarish light of factory furnaces by night."--BOOK JACKET

"Inventing the Modern World explores innovation and its effect on the creation of objects and modern life. Objects examined here not only illustrate inventive or revived fabrication techniques, but also embody cross-cultural and cross-national influences, and reflect the significant nationalistic objectives and folkloric customs that shaped the competition inherent in the events. They also illuminate how the fairs became places where designers, makers, and consumers assembled to learn about other peoples and cultures, to make discoveries about craftsmanship and manufactures, to appropriate ideas, and to acquire works"
