FEATURED:Visionary Super 8

Quite possibly the least visionary book ever written on Super 8 filmmaking, Jon R Hand's book might have the coolest book title ever, along with that post-postwar institutional design I can't get enough of: minimal font, stark black and white, and a plastic ring binder that manages to echo the film sprockets of the the strip of film running along the opposite side of the cover.
But my brain begins to sweat every time I contemplate Visionary Super 8. Is it just another outdated technical manual or is it truly visionary in some sort of double-negative kind of way?...heck if I know.
