Drawing Blood: Forty Five Years of Scarfe
by Gerald Scarfe
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars a big beast of a book, bulging with Scarfes illustrations, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a brilliant book if you like his work.bulging with his illustrations,it's a big, beautiful book which I keep nearby as a regular source of inspiration when producing illustrative work with pen and ink.If you like Scarfe, Ralph Steadman is great also.


The Art of Drew Struzan
The Art of Drew Struzan
by Drew Struzan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £21.24

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book for poster designers/illustrators, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is the type of work that is unfortunately disappearing in the field of poster art, in favour of "art" that is produced digitally, faster and more cheaply. Drew Struzan is an amazing craftsman and artist, whose work has inspired and persuaded millions to love so many films.There are a few other books which contain more of his work, but this one is a worthy one to have, as it contains preparatory drawings for all of the poster art contained inside.

1.0 out of 5 stars the content of this book is fantastic, unfortunately every page fell out!, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book is full of fantastic artwork from the film.I couldn't recommend it highly enough, if you can get hold of a copy that stays together.perhaps the hardback is a better option, unfortunately within a month, every page in my copy came loose, so its difficult to use it for reference as a concept designer/illustrator.

Howard Hughes - The Untold Story (The life that inspired Martin Scorsese's The Aviator)
Howard Hughes - The Untold Story (The life that inspired Martin Scorsese's The Aviator)
by Peter Harry Brown
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars ups and downs, as a story and as a read!, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
some parts of this book are really inspiring, which is exactly what I was hoping for, but a lot of it revolves around Howard Hughes' personal life as opposed to his professional, in particular focusing on his multitude of romantic conquests/mishaps.i found myself having to power through descriptions of relationship after relationship, to really enjoy the areas of the book which dealt with his successes in the aviation and film industries.still well worth a read, as parts are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book, a very relaxing, easy read, perfect for travel., 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
excellent book, a very relaxing, easy read, perfect for travel.after a while it does get a little repetitive, and only gives very light insight into topics of zen buddhism, but a nice introduction into these areas, with no overly religious views.you don't need to be very religious to enjoy it.
