I had to buy this for class. When I did, I thought "Ugh, an art textbook." Thought it was going to be another one we never opened and I wasted money on.

Surprise! I actually really, really like this book. It's great for an introduction to drawing (my boyfriend doesn't know it yet, but he's going to be reading it soon so he can quit asking me drawing questions!). It also has tons of great examples when I need to be inspired for class.
previous editions are better-get edition previous to this one or the one after this one. However the texts are excellent learning tools and have wonderful educatiing and terriffiic artistic prompts
This was the text for my Drawing class. was required. There are some very helpful sections. but overall I don't think a spectrum of various types of art, and would not recommend it as a first choice, unless you have to get it.
This is more of an academic textbook on drawing. It is quite through and covers many basic drawing techniques and gives a variety of studio exercises. Would be best understood by someone who has a basic intro to drawing already, if they want to work on their own without an instructor. Some of the exercises are fairly complex and require various media.
In my search for creative drawing I looked in the wrong places. This book has a number of techniques which sparked my creativity. There are many exercises in form, value, line, and other subjects with examples on how to use the techniques. Lots of examples. It also has pushed me to draw a lot more now that I have a new repertoire. I believe that variety is something that I needed.
I rented the e-book. The format was hard to read on a smartphone. It was missing some images due to copyright restrictions and many of images were grainy.
great techniques, lots of illustrations to show the user how to approach the exercises, very inspiring, the book was in great condition when it arrived.
Perfect for college class
