Books that apply Peircean semiotics to visual images are relatively rare, and rarer still are books which, like that of Tony Jappy, review a large number of concepts developed by Charles Sanders Peirce in order to provide tools for the analysis of visual signs. * Revue Cygne noir (Bloomsbury translation) *
Peirce's scholarly life was one dedicated to understanding the nature and rhetorical function of both verbal and pictorial representation. Jappy's book clearly demonstrates how the powerful - and often poorly understood - framework of Charles S. Peirce's semiotics may be applied successfully to the analysis of pictorial documents. This book is a milestone in the centennial of Peirce's death that we are commemorating in 2014. -- Jaime Nubiola, University of Navarra, Spain
Tony Jappy's new book is a masterful application of Charles Sanders Peirce's theory of signs to the visual world, a thoroughly-grounded exploration of the proposition that seeing is knowing in all its multifaceted details. The author's extensive pedagogical experience and the wealth of illustrative material make Introduction to Peircean Visual Semiotics an indispensable guide to the subject. -- Michael Shapiro, Brown University, USA
