This is a book about visual literacy. It both advocates and equips the scholarly use of visual images as visual evidence. The visual is not mere illustration, it is the text. Enabling a rediscovery of the visual skills of the past facilitates the investigation of history and the understanding of the present. Chapters by international authorities have been specially commissioned on the use of visual evidence from painting to political prints, photographs, documentary, feature films, television, news and advertising.
