The Laserist magazine
   ILDA's official magazine, The Laserist

Laser handbook

Laser F/X: The Light Show Handbook is a 430-page book which is the single best introduction to the topic. The book, which costs roughly $120, is ideal for anyone getting started in the field.
      In addition, each May the publisher holds a conference which includes laser light show seminars and a trade show. Finally, a laser newsletter is available on the Internet.
      If you doing anything with laser shows, you definitely should get on the mailing list of:

  • Laser F/X International, 1153 Pioneer Road Unit P, Burlington, Ontario, Canada L7M 1K5 (905) tel/fax. 332-2001 www.laserfx.com

Laser show magazines

There is only one publication in the world that exclusively covers laser shows and displays: The Laserist, the official magazine of the International Laser Display Association. This quarterly report on laser show news and products is free to members, and is also sent to selected buyers working in lighting and production.
     The on-line version at www.laserist.org includes a Marketplace section that lists laser display vendors. It also has special features to help novices and experts learn more about laser display issues. Edited by ILDA's David Lytle, the website has great photos and is easy to navigate.
     To contact ILDA regarding The Laserist subscriptions, see ILDA's listing on the Laser trade associations page.

The only other publication with information on lasers in every issue is Pro Lights and Staging News.

Technical magazines

Technical laser magazines are good sources for specialized information. The magazines usually publish a yearly buyers' guide which is excellent both for locating companies and for articles summarizing such topics as laser characteristics, applications and safety.
    They are all controlled circulation publications, sent free to qualified individuals with purchasing authority in the laser field. (If you're going to purchase, you're qualified; subscription forms can be found inside the magazines.)
     You can also find the magazines and buyers' guides in university and technical libraries.
