From the Book Shelf
This book just arrived at our library and we're all quite taken with it. Sized small (5x7") to fit in your coat pocket or journal bag, it's full to the bursting with nearly 200 techniques to use in your drawing and sketching. Complied by Helen Birch with contributions from dozens and dozens of artists. The table of contents includes a small thumbnail of each spread, And a great index divides sections into Principal Element, Medium,Type of Drawing and Subject. Lots of tips, techniques and eye candy. Published by Chronicle so you know you're in for a treat. I plan to delve into it more deeply when I can wrest it from my co-worker's hands!
