Few books on lighting design for the theatre take the reader from the very basics. Coleman’s short book literally begins with the conceptual elements of a task, and whether the lighting is to be for effect or as a seamless part of a bigger picture. It does assume knowledge of the previous book, A Beginners Guide to Stage Lighting, or at least some ideas about hardware, but otherwise a good starting point.
