An inequality of Petty regarding the volume of a convex body and that of the polar of its projection body is shown to lead to an inequality between the volume of a convex body and the power means of its brightnees function. A special case of this power-mean inequality is the classical isepiphanic (isoperimetric) inequality. The power-mean inequality can also be used to obtain strengthened forms and extensions of some known and conjectured geometric inequalities. Affine projection measures (Quermassintegrale) are introduced.
