Collecting Picture and Photo Frames introduces the reader to the history of frames and an across-the-board sampling of framing styles from the early 1800s through the 1940s. Beautifully illustrated in over 400 color photographs, this book is the first of its kind to show such variety and magnitude of both wall frames and table top frames in detail and full color. Whether you are an amateur or novice collector of frames, someone who simply appreciates good frames for your pictures, or a student of art and design history, this book will give you insight into the style, beauty, and value of antique frames. Different frame materials are described, along with information on identifying and dating your pieces. A price guide is also given for each item.

Since the inception of photography in the early nineteenth century, photographs have been made, used, collected, and discarded in greatly increasing numbers. Despite the photograph's persistence in daily life, until recently most types of everyday photography have remained unexamined by historians and have been absent from the walls of galleries and museums. In response to this omission, some scholars have begun to consider photography as a "vernacular" practice. This reframing of the history of photography serves as the starting point forIn the Vernacular: Photography of the Everyday.In the Vernacularutilizes the Rodger Kingston Collection-a collection of approximately 4,000 vernacular images including snapshots, wedding photographs, news and advertising images, insurance pictures, family pictures, travel albums, grade-school class portraits, and pin-up photographs-as the rich visual source material for its exploration of photography of the everyday.The publication includes 75 full-colour reproductions organized thematically, as well as an introductory essay by Ross Barrett and Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw, plus essays on the vernacular and the Kingston Collection by Bernard L. Herman and Daile Kaplan. The book also includes one of the first comprehensive bibliographies on the subject of vernacular photography.

SBIA, the Brazilian Symposium on Arti?cial Intelligence, is a biennial event intended to be the main forum of the AI community in Brazil. The SBIA 2004 was the 17th issue of the series initiated in 1984. Since 1995 SBIA has been accepting papers written and presented only in English, attracting researchers from all over the world. At that time it also started to have an international program committee, keynote invited speakers, and proceedings published in the Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence (LNAI) series of Springer (SBIA 1995, Vol. 991, SBIA 1996, Vol. 1159, SBIA 1998, Vol. 1515, SBIA 2000, Vol. 1952, SBIA 2002, Vol. 2507). SBIA 2004 was sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It was held from September 29 to October 1 in the city of S ̃ ao Luis, in the northeast of Brazil, together with the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks (SBRN). This followed a trend of joining the AI and ANN communities to make the joint event a very exciting one. In particular, in 2004 these two events were also held togetherwiththeIEEEInternationalWorkshoponMachineLearningandSignal Processing (MMLP), formerly NNLP. The organizationalstructure of SBIA 2004was similar to other international scienti?cconferences.Thebackboneofthe conferencewasthe technicalprogram whichwascomplementedbyinvitedtalks,workshops,etc.onthemainAItopics.

Fundamentals of Light Microscopy and Electronic Imaging, Second Edition provides a coherent introduction to the principles and applications of the integrated optical microscope system, covering both theoretical and practical considerations. It expands and updates discussions of multi-spectral imaging, intensified digital cameras, signal colocalization, and uses of objectives, and offers guidance in the selection of microscopes and electronic cameras, as well as appropriate auxiliary optical systems and fluorescent tags. The book is divided into three sections covering optical principles in diffraction and image formation, basic modes of light microscopy, and components of modern electronic imaging systems and image processing operations. Each chapter introduces relevant theory, followed by descriptions of instrument alignment and image interpretation. This revision includes new chapters on live cell imaging, measurement of protein dynamics, deconvolution microscopy, and interference microscopy. PowerPoint slides of the figures as well as other supplementary materials for instructors are available at a companion website: www.wiley.com/go/murphy/lightmicroscopy

The Expression and Perception of Space in Wayana

Until recently it was assumed that all cultures perceive and express space from the ego. However, this belief in a universal phenomenological bias is currently being challenged by many linguists from several disciplines, who believe that space can also be perceived intrinsically or absolutely. This ethno-linguistic analysis of the Cariban language, Wayana (still spoken in the dense rainforests of Suriname, French Guiana and Brazil), not only strengthens these claims but, more importantly, gives a detailed account of how spatiality is expressed in Wayana. Particular attention is given to their rich postpositional system surrounding topological relations, to their demonstrative pronouns and to their locative adverbs. Additionally, following the idea that language and culture are intrinsically interwoven, this linguistic analysis gives us a glimpse into the worldview of the Wayana, enabling us to achieve a greater understanding of how the Wayana perceive and categorize space and the landscape in which they live.
