The editing process is a vital part of virtually every form of media. Primarily associated with texts and written language, editing is equally essential, if less examined, in regard to visual media. Editing the Image looks at the editing of visual media as both a series of technical exercises and as an allegory. It touches on concerns that are crucial to the history of art and visual culture, as well as those media and institutions that produce and disseminate the visual arts in our society.

Featuring contributors from a wide range of disciplines, Editing the Image considers editing in the context of academic journals, art-historical texts, illustrated books, museum displays, and exhibitions. It is an inclusive analysis of visual forms commonly associated with the process of editing – photography, film, and video – as well as some that are not intrinsically linked to editing – painting, sculpture, and architecture. In addition to wide-ranging academic considerations, this collection includes discussions of moving picture media and studio art by practitioners, giving the study a practical focus. For anyone who has considered the implications of the editorial process, this work will be of significant interest.

Book News
We expect our texts to be carefully vetted, punched up, and artfully arranged. Every word should be in the approved fashion, and we accept that the powers that be have complete control. However, we do not seem to notice that virtually every scrap of visual information has had the same treatment. In these proceedings from the November 2003 conference entitled "Editing (Out?) the Image," contributors of these 11 articles look at the editing of visual media as both a series of technical exercises and as an allegory. They concentrate on the history of art and visual culture as well as on institutions that produce and disseminate the visual arts in our society, covering academic journals, art-historical texts, illustrated books, museum displays, exhibitions, moving picture media and studio art by practitioners.
