Overview

A comprehensive, time-tested text published first in the mid-1960s, for both beginning and advanced drawing classes (although more material is presented than can be covered in any one course). Daniel Mendelowitz (late, of Stanford), who initially wrote the book, was succeeded by Duane A. Wakeham, who saw the text through three editions; David L. Faber takes the reins with this sixth edition, which features a generous number of illustrative drawings (including two color sections), exercises followed by critique questions, a focus on the importance of seeing, and new emphasis on combined techniques of various media.
