Kristen Doty: Drawing for Calligraphers (and those who think they can't draw)
B3452. Sketch Book for the Artist by Sarah Simblet. 2009. 264pp. 8.75"x10.75". Paperback $21.95
" This book has some instruction, but it's more about beautiful reproductions -- of the author's and many other artists' work in a wide variety of styles and subject matter -- that intrigue and inspire." -Kristen

Perspective Made Easy by Ernest R. Norling. 1999 (1939). 224pp. 5-3/8"x8.5". Paper $9.95 Perspective is easy; yet, surprisingly few artists know the simple rules that make it so. Now they can remedy that situation with a step-by-step book that clarifies the simple rules of perspective. Using over 250 simple line drawings, the author leads you through every important concept. "A great little book" - Kristen Doty.
