Understanding Visual Information through Deep Viewing.
Pailliotet, Ann Watts

It provides a means of analysis for any type of visual text. The theoretical origins and premises of deep viewing are examined. Also, the deep viewing methodology as it may be applied in a classroom setting is described. Finally, further applications of the deep viewing method are identified. (Contains 37 references.) (JLB)
