The excellent illustrations and text by James Richards were not matched by the other contibutors particularly the electronic ones which did not have much relervance to the general theme of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Aug 2013
By E. F
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am really pleased with this book. I have been sketching for a few years with mixed results and was looking for a book to help with some areas like prespective and composition. This book offers great practical advice on many aspects but it also makes you want to get up and start drawing! I inmediately noticed an improvement on my sketches by applying my newly acquired knowledge. It is also beautifully put together and it gives you access to demo videos by the author.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the best book I have bought for a long time: it gives good information and detail. It is very readable: I can pick it up and read a few pages or study for longer periods. Great for gaining insight and new ideas. A lot of thought and research has gone into this book. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book!! 21 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have several books on sketching, but this one is great. It really teaches you step by step about how to go about it, which is often missing from other books. Particularly useful for architecture and landscape architecture students, but also for any urban sketcher!! Definitely worth the purchase!!
