As our first technology for contemplation of the self, the mirror is arguably as important an invention as the wheel and perhaps even more universal.Mirror Mirroris the fascinating story of the mirror's invention, refinement, and use in an astonishing range of human activities-from the bloodthirsty smoking gods of the Toltecs, to the fantastic mirrored rooms wealthy Romans created for their orgies, to the mirror's key role in the use and understanding of light. From Archimedes to Isaac Newton to Max Factor to David Hockney, this is the fascinating tale of one of the most remarkable inventions in human history and its effects on myth, religion, science, manners, and the arts.
" Mirror Mirror is a terrific book, filling a gap in the history of art, psychology, and science. The history of optics and optical devices is shrouded in fog, and the reconstruction of the history of optical projections of reality — particularly using concave mirrors — is only just beginning."
