Format: Hardcover
Great little book for looking through and getting ideas for your own personal sketchbooks. As an Art teacher, I bought this as a possible teaching aid...as an idea it's probably only really useful, in that instance, for ALevel or VERY high ability KS4. Great for arty types though wanting to expand their own sketchbook style.

Helpful and insightful to understand what tutors may be expecting from student's sketchbooks once they're in Uni.
Showed me I didn't need to be too fussy or precious. It's a work in progress and all about displaying development and thought processes as well as media processes.

Not quite what I was expecting, but my fault as i should have researched it a bit more. I thought it was an art sketch book, so was expecting more drawings.

Hoping for more! 19 Aug 2009
By Roy Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lovely. One of the smartest books on the subject I've come across. Covers a diverse mix of talent and specialty. Well-written, insightful and elegantly-designed (natch)... would love to see additional volumes.

A must have 26 Aug 2009
By I.M. Smart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is alternately inspiring and terrifying.

Inspiring to see the raw energy of so many talented designers. Terrifying in the overwhelming number of beautiful, spontaneously rendered concepts.

Most of my sketchbooks have phone numbers and lists of "people I think are a jerk today".

For seasoned designers, it's a rare glimpse into the intimate workings of other professionals process. For students it's an alternate textbook, a real world look at the work that goes into creating all those shiny design annual pieces.

Inspiring 11 Jun 2009
By P. B. Hastings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a collection of books on sketchbooks and this title adds a new dimension. It is motivating and inspiring to peek inside the design process. I have been savoring it slowly and letting it sink in.

Awful 5 Jun 2010

Format: Hardcover
There is nothing of value in this book. It's painfully horrible. Don't buy it.

not very impressive. I think other books do a better job of this. Its worth flipping through at a store but I would hold off on buying it. Mine will be for sale as slightly used if anyone is interested
