Abstract: ‘‘Fireplay’’ is a generalist overview of pyrotechnics. It is indebted (and acknowledges its debt) to seminal works such as Brock’s ‘‘History of Pyrotechnics’’ (1949), yet develops an aesthetic – even metaphysical – discussion of the key question for our profession: ‘Why do fireworks move people?’

Keywords: History, aesthetics, gunpowder
