Expanded Cinema

Gene Youngblood


Studio Vista, London, 1970. First U.K. Edition. Hardcover with illustrated Dust Jacket. 432pp., 6.25 x 8.25 inches

Very Good, if not better, dust jacket which is price clipped and shows extremely minor fading with a .25cm chip at the crown of the spine. Minimal foxing to the top of the text block and two small discolorations to the rear board, otherwise the blue cloth and pages remain bright and sharp with a strong binding.

This landmark text considers the future of cinema and filmmaking with an emphasis on the new technologies of the time such as computer art, holography, multi-media environments and video art. 

From the forward by R. Buckminster Fuller:

“Gene Youngblood’s book is the most brilliant conceptioning of the objectively positive use of the Scenario-Universe principle, which must be employed by humanity to synchronize its senses and its knowledge in time to ensure the continuance of that little, three-and-one-half-billion-member team of humanity now installed by evolution abouard our little Space Vehicle Earth.”
