Designed for courses in Creativity or Three-Dimensional Design, Launching the Imagination: A Guide to Three-Dimensional Design offers a comprehensive framework on which students, teachers, and administrators can build. The approach in this second edition is refined, distilled, and updated, using hundreds of examples drawn from traditional and contemporary sources. Profiles with interviews of artists and designers introduce students to working processes, career choices, and criteria for excellence from a remarkable group of masters.
