Science and Art: The Arts of Industry in the Age of Enlightenment, by Celina Fox
Apparently I'm not the only one who's interested in the interesection of the "sciences" and the "arts." While I've written briefly about the subject a number of times, here's an entire book that sounds like it's right up my alley. (Of course, I've thought the same thing before and came out with mixed results. I think I'll request it from the library rather than shelling out £40 (or $60.58 for you Yanks). I didn't know they even published books that cost that much. No wonder the industry is dying.)
Still, from the write-up by Jenny Uglow in The Guardianfrom this weekend sounds absolutely fascinating.
