    From the Publisher

    "Of great benefit is Newton's recommended palette, comprising 26 colors. And there are numerous "green" ideas, from reusing heavy watercolor paper to recycling excess pastel dust in new, handmade pastel sticks... It's a softcover that seems durable and will bear the stress of much use."
