About the Author
BURNE HOGARTH (1911 1996), hailed as the Michaelangelo of the comic strip, was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday "Tarzan," Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in a powerful, new way. As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts one of the world s leading art schools he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for "The Burne Hogarth"(r)"Dynamic Drawing Series" that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide. Hogarth s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Musee des Arts Decoratifs and Marseilles Bibliotheque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades."

Perhaps I'm being a trifle unfair to Mr Hogarth, after all the book's contents are not bad, but that is how it seems to me.

The text seems somewhat out of kilter with the illustrations, which often contain more helpful information, such as arrows showing the way folds fall and stretch.
Hogarth is no doubt an excellent artist, but perhaps not such a good author.
The illustrations although superb are very dated.
