5.0 out of 5 stars Whats With the Prices?????, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is brilliant but it is not worth £450. It is not worth £100. Little over, maybe, doubling the original retail price, due to its now limited availability, personally I can not see how these ridicules prices are warranted.

It is not the book Im slagging off here, not for one second.

It is a beautifully designed book with a really interesting selection of work and interviews from established contempoary artists who utilise the drawing process within their work.

The greatest thing about this book is the freedom it encourages. It aims to show the value, qualities and beauty in every single mark made right from the very beginning of the students creative pursuit. That creativity is at its greatest extent an action and it is something everyone can do no matter what experience, education or age.

I couldn't recommend this book more highly and it is a shame that the exchange of materials which enables ordinary people to access the benefits of this experimental thoroughly contempoary approach to the creative process (or any other form of education) through the guidance of greatly experienced, innovative and motivated teachers/lecturers, such as the authors of this book, is blocked by greedy anonymous people who are chancin' their arm at making easy money.

The ACTUAL value of certain items I come across on the second hand market as opposed to someones inflated value are, at times, in my personal opinion, violently distorted. For £100 Phhhh ..... its ridicules. I recommend looking for the book elsewhere_ or_ as useful and pleasantly designed as the content may be, forget the book, and enrol at a local collage instead.

(Apologies for any dyslexic mistakes)

5.0 out of 5 stars A good alternative to the more expensive brands, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not being someone who would ever normally feel the urge to write reviews, I wanted to do so for this case. Looking at a lot of different alternatives on this site and others I was not optimistic about finding a good priced case that didn't look cheap or one that was very brittle easily snap(able). Choosing this product as the best looking option I was very happy when it came and its definitely exceeded my expectations. It doesn't look like a lump of plastic, clips on perfectly and the texture of the surface isn't bad either. From my perception the orange is a bit more neon than it comes across in the photo but I don't mind that. This is a good option and at a reasonable price for those on a budget and also anyone who feels like they don't necessarily need to spend £30+ on a case.
