[each chapter provides] an insightful overview of issues pertinent to any student of visual culture...There is little doubt that Visual Culture offers a sound and engaging introduction to the nuances and complexities of visual analysis and will be of great benefit to its readers."
Times Higher Education Supplement
"an essential guide ....an excellent introduction to visual analysis, giving the reader scope for contemplation and consideration."
Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
"A comprehensive, sophisticated, eminently readable analysis of what everyone sees but almost no one notices."
John Stilgoe, Harvard University
"Generous, wide-ranging, always helpful and clear, Richard Howells has produced a succinct and versatile guide to the different languages that images speak. For the literature student in particular, this is, I believe, the best general introduction available to the key ideas, the key questions and the key texts of visual culture."
John Harvey, University of Cambridge
"From Panofsky to the Beatles, from Puccini to Oasis, from Rothco to Eric Cantona, the range and scope of Visual Culture is impressive. Every reader will learn something new, see old things in a new light and, most importantly, learn to read and understand the visual in an informed and comprehensive new way."
Brent MacGregor, Edinburgh College of Art
