The Look Of The Past
Ludmilla Jordanova

Analysing visual and material culture is central to the historian's craft and The Look of the Past provides a much-needed introduction to the use of artefacts as evidence.

Accessibly written and generously illustrated, this textbook develops the skills students need in order to describe, analyse and contextualise images and objects.
