Summary

Intended for anyone with an interest in the visual arts and assuming no prior knowledge of physics, this introduction presents the science of light--that is, the science behind what and how we see. The approach emphasizes phenomena rather than mathematical theory and the joy of discovery rather than the drudgery of derivations--the opposite of "heavy science". Numerous simple experiments are included. 260 illus.
