'What makes [the book] successful is the range of scenographers it considers, from Appia in the early twentieth century to Robert Wilson in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. ... Each section is impressively documented with photographs and illustrations. The combination of text and illustrations makes the book complete, inviting, and a great introduction for students and their instructors.' Theatre Design and Technology
'This book is excellent as an introduction to the study of scenography for undergraduate students. It provides both an examination of the theories of key practitioners and a foundation in the techniques of critical analysis. ... the range of twentieth-century theorists and practitioners chosen and discussed by McKinney and Butterworth equips the student reader with an understanding of the emergence of scenography as both a way of thinking about how theatre is made and experienced, and as a set of related strategies and practices.' Rachel Nicholson, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance
'McKinney's and Butterworth's textbook is a coherent and thoughtful examination of the subject that weaves together primary sources and contemporary scholarship as it maps out an understanding of how scenography works physically, technologically, philosophically and culturally.' Theatre Research international
