Book itself looks good, but the illustrations are tiny and cannot be enlarged. And this is a drawing instruction book! Text formatting is fragmented across pages. Unusable and I can't return it.
There are many pertinent example drawings to further illustrate each topic section. Because I am a novice, this was extremely helpful. Along with the educational value, "Sketching People" could also be used as a coffee table book.
