Giovanna Fossati's From Grain to Pixel has been an immensely valuable source for theories and practices of film digitization and restoration since its first publication in 2009. The new updated edition considers the changing requirements of this extremely dynamic, evolving field. Thanks to her double expertise as a film scholar and a curator, Fossati is able not only to provide deep insights into current approaches and advanced tools, but also to integrate them into her highly reflected theoretical framework thereby providing a state-of-the-art reference for research and teaching. - Barbara Flueckiger, Professor of Film Studies, University of Zurich[-][-]"When From Grain to Pixel appeared it was the first motion picture study to fully engage with both archival practice and film theory, setting a high standard for the emerging area of film heritage studies. After nearly a decade, Giovanna Fossati's book still stands alone-fascinating, visionary, and provocative. Remarkably, the updates in this revised edition make it even more essential today." - Jane M. Gaines, Professor of Film, Columbia University - author of Pink-Slipped: What Happened to Women in the Early Film Industries?[-][-]"Giovanna Fossati does more than simply give the most thoughtful, thorough and up-to-date account of the transformation in motion picture archiving over the last decades. She forces us to reconsider the nature of the moving image and prepare for a new era of communication and preservation." - Tom Gunning, Professor of Art History, Cinema and Media Studies, University of Chicago[-][-]"Scholarly research on film and media is profoundly influenced by the way in which moving images are preserved and made accessible for scrutiny. This fact alone should make Giovanna Fossati's book mandatory reading for all graduate courses in the field." - Paolo Cherchi Usai, Senior Curator, Moving Image Department, George Eastman Museum
