Look what came through the post today! Woohoo! That's the kids' Easter holidays ruined then.


(I have just discovered Oldies.com. This lot cost me a piddling 26 US Dollars including postage to the UK.)

Look what I found in the Oxfam shop in Oban today:



ASC’s American Cinematographer Manual 1969

A handbook full of such vital information as angle/speed ratios for filming moving cars in such a way that the moving background doesn't appear to change speed as you cut from one angle to another; threading diagrams for most (if not all) popular 16 and 35mm film cameras; swathes of tables giving every conceivable detail about every lens that will screw onto the front of those cameras and articles on all sorts of things like The Reflex Projection System for Composite Photography (Front Projection), Screen Brightness and Colour Temperature Levels for Review Rooms...

I wish I understood more of it but what I can make out is fascinating stuff.

I loved Ordinary Families. A strange, patchy but kind of genius book. Does it still have an intro with context? She was one of the reporters at the Nuremberg Trials, I seem to remember. If I also remember rightly it was one of the first Penguin books. Must dig it out and read it again.
