fun, art of a sort and a personal story.....,
This review is from: A Short Book About Drawing (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A story about frustration, desire and a little amount of drawing.
Andrew Marr doesn't waste his words in relating his life desire around the wish to draw. It is not a manual on how to draw, but rather an enjoyment of what he draws and why. All the pictures in the book were created by him, yet have a rough quality to each. Marr also offers his take on the historical aspects of drawing, particularly in European culture, and categorising different types of drawing and art.
Attractively put-together, but I wonder what it's value will be after a first-read.....
