(Preface) 'This translation of the original 1925-27 Moholy-Nagy book presents his innovative photograms made without a camera, the creative X-rays, super-wide-angle fisheye pictures, double prints, collages, montages, and the Bauhaus artist's thoughts on the interrelationship of type, audio, and visual perception.

"An important historical work giving us insight into the evolution of today's emphasis on widening horizons of all visual and audial concepts." Modern Photography

"The first kinetic artist, the first multimedia artist - Moholy-Nagy could be called both of these, but the labels tend to belittle his extraordinary visionary imagination so vividly expressed in this book." Margot Kernan, The Washington Post

"...Moholy proceeds to explore the relationship of light, space, kinetics - providing a theoretical foundation for much of the art and design of the past 40 years. " Print
