The text is illustrated with colour, black and white photographs and Black and white drawings. Charles Sheeler (1886-1965) was an American artist who embraced the machine / technology of the 20th century. He has been either regarded as a heretic or the high priest in the religion of mass production and technology. In this book . The author argues, " ... that Sheeler's images do not celebrate the machine, but question its predominance during his time. They provoke us to confront the social consequences of modern technology. Sheeler appears in this book, as neither believe nor heretic in the cult of the machine. Lucic asks us to grant Sheeler his ambivalence, for it was this that enabled him to betray modernity so splendidly." -- from the rear panel blurb.
