Horn Book Review

The piecemeal design of these books invites the reader to dip in and read small segments in order to easily learn a great deal or just the most important facts. Each double-page spread contains up to a dozen reproductions of artwork, sketchbooks, artists' materials, and examples of techniques, with extensive information appearing in captions and other small blocks of type. Included is a list of where to find each artist's works. Glos., ind. From HORN BOOK 1993, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
