A Communications Primer

Ray Eames, Charles Eames (directors)
Elmer Bernstein (composer)
Claud Shannon (book)

N.p. N.p., Circa 1953. Vintage promotional flyer for the 1953 short film.

A short film based on the semantics of communication as outlined in Claude Shannon's 1949 book "The Mathematical Theory of Communication." Legendary modernist designers Charles and Ray Eames produced 125 short films between 1950 and 1982, using the medium as a vehicle for experimentation and education. The best-remembered of these, the 1968 and 1977 "Powers of Ten" films, were selected for preservation in the National Film Library in 1998.

22 x 8.5 inches unfolded, folded five times and measuring 3.75 x 8.5 inches when folded. Very Good, with silverfish damage along one fold and light creasing at the corners.
