    Inspirational book - highly recommended

    Lovely book with beautiful images .Excellent for both art students and teachers. Inspirational illustrations and intelligent text.This is not simply an instruction manual or "how to" book, it also is lovely just to look at .I have gone back and referred to it over and over again since I first bought it about two years ago . Very highly recommended.
