|| Gwasg Prifysgol Cymru / University of Wales Press|
Take a multimedia journey into the visual culture of Wales during its industrial age between 1750 and 1960. Investigate the relations between communities, image makers and images as Welsh society evolved from rural beginnings into a key worldwide supplier of coal, copper, slate, iron and steel.
This CD-ROM is a stunning addition to the series. It contains not only a full electronic version of the associated book but also:
- 600 high-quality images in full detail on screen (many of them rediscovered or not otherwise on public view)
- an extra 200 illustrations
- quotations, interviews, archive sound, film clips and virtual panoramas
- biographies of famous and lesser-known artists
- glossary, bibliography, timeline, map
This is an essential companion for anyone interested in visual arts or the history of industrial Wales, and the starting point for understanding visual culture within the context of an industrial society.
