An Illustrated Almanac of Technical Information
This 309 page handbook from America is packed with useful information with clear line drawings.
It has illustrations of roller cloths, counterweight systems, hardware and tools.
Chapters cover types of theatres, architectural mouldings, electrics, geometry, paints and materials.
Although some of the terms are American, this book is still a valuable source of information and would be useful for those starting on a career in the industry as well as old hands.
