Joint Review: "The Colour Fantastic and Chromatic Modernity are undoubtedly two significant contributions to their growing sub-field. ... They promote a fastidious treatment of relevant key contexts, from aesthetic discourses and polemics to technological and cultural innovations. And yet, equally, they prove that insisting upon the complexity of this history and eschewing simple linear explanations is not to make it inaccessible to non-colour specialists - such is the profound impression of originality and scholarly necessity created by their consistently sophisticated argumentation and deftly articulated interventions." - Patrick Adamson, Frames Cinema Journal, No 17 (2020)
"Reading this volume, I was taken with the passionate and relentless dedication to early film colour’s study spearheaded by a group of diverse and committed researchers over a span of decades. Their efforts "personalize" research and point to the growing cohort of human agents who make the expanding and transformational discourses about colour legible. This volume is an elegantly curated and timely contribution to the continuing scholarship on early cinematic colour and its relationship to 21st century material, visual, and digital cultures." - Denise Mok, Film & History 49.2
