Research, Principles, and Practices in Visual Communication by John, Ed Ball( )

2 editions published between 1960 and 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the sponsorship of the National Project in Agricultural Communications, a series of 14 lessons by various authors has been compiled to serve as a reader or training manual in the field of visual communications. Several models of communications are outlined and evaluated. Many studies which concern themselves with the concepts of source, encoding or decoding methods, channel, message, and receiver are described briefly. The development, structure, and function of visual perception are sketched, with reference made to the part that individual differences, motivation, and set play in visual communication. Several specific theories of perception are presented in a condensed form. Some guidelines for planning and evaluating a communications program are laid down. The choice and use of effective design and appropriate medium for visual communication are discussed. Some solutions to problems in obtaining, coordinating, storing, and filing visual materials are offered. Research studies on the roles of drive, cue, response, reward, and visual factors as a part of the learning process of communication are surveyed. An extensive bibliography is included. (Jy)

A dream of John Ball by William Morris( Book )

1 edition published in 1890 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A Dream of John Ball (1888) is a novel by English author William Morris about the English peasants' revolt of 1381 and the rebel John Ball. Like the novels close contemporary - A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889) by Mark Twain - it describes a dream and time travel encounter between the medieval and modern worlds. However unlike Twain's vision of a violent and chaotic "Dark Age", Morris describes a positive image of the Middle Ages, seeing it as a golden, if brief, period when peasants were prosperous and happy and guilds protected workers from exploitation
