    Hi all. I'm teaching my first lighting design class and am required to use a textbook with an edition printed in the last 5 years or so (and obviously still needs to be in print). I'm aware of "A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting" - anyone have any other recommendations to check out?

    Thanks!

    +1 I’m currently reading through it, and I think it offers a great introduction to Lighting Design without throwing lesser-experienced individuals into the deep end. It also provides a practical foundation for the earliest lighting design job I imagine most techs will inherit: ALD. Pretty recent although a bit over-simplified at times if your class has any tech experience already.
