A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting Third Edition Paperback – October 27, 2013 by Steven Louis Shelley

This is a great book that delves into the process of creating a lighting design, from start to finish, including script analysis, rough design process sketches, rough light plots and finished paperwork. Steve not only gives information on how it's done, but also tells fantastic stories from the road. His "Soapbox" rants are priceless. I use this book for several classes I teach to both undergrad and grad students.
