It then relates these characteristics and cultural movements to the design needs you'll encounter as you design a period production.

"How delightful of Mr. Tine, to take us on a journey of visual spectacle and discovery so essential for anyone needing to know the high points in life, art and architecture as they weave the net of human creative development. It's as if the author has "time travelled" to each period, waded through its essence and come back to tell us what we must not miss on our own journey of recollection, of the important elements we need to fulfill any and all recreations which might involve historical subjects."
- Professor Elizabeth Popiel, Western Connecticut State University, School of Visual and Performing Arts. Scenic Designer USA Local 829 IATSE.
"Hal Tine, experienced Broadway and regional designer and educator, has created an excellent resource for beginning the exploration of historical periods as they relate to all aspects of design."
-Natalie Robin, Stage Directions
