Breakfast at Tiffany's
Breakfast at Tiffany's
by Truman Capote
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely tale..., 5 May 2010

This review is from: Breakfast at Tiffany's (Paperback)
SPOILER ALERT

(I wish more people would write that above if they intend on divulging more...)

I prefer the film ending if you ask me. This book ends on a sour note, or maybe I'm just too much of a romantic. Regardless this is book is written wonderfully and I couldn't put it down till I finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, sturdy and still going, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this for over a year now and it's still going, nothing broken, everything working as I would expect despite a few curries exploding inside...

There are a few settings for certain types of dishes that I found superfluous as we don't make those dishes in a microwave, but I suppose some people might find it useful. Not really a grievance though...

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a wonderful resource, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anatomy for the Artist (Hardcover)
There is no other reference book that is as good as this. The book is huge, lots of pictures of anterior, exterior views of the various parts of the body, supplemented by drawings of the muscles on transparent pages placed on top of the relevant body part.

I just wish more people would make books like this. The other anatomy for artist books are either grainy pictures of nudes from the 70s or hideous drawings of badly proportioned naked people. I use this book and my wealth of reference collected from the net, all the other books for me are useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Parallel book, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the title says this is a great parallel book for french learners. There is another more modern book available too on amazon, and I would not suggest getting that instead, but getting both. Both are good, but the other has more enjoyable stories for me.


Photoshop CS3 Essential Skills
Photoshop CS3 Essential Skills

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and still relevant..., 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have CS4 now and this is still useful and will still be when I upgrade to CS5. There are some great tutorials and most are useful. It's written well and structured nicely.


Maya 8 Character Modeling: A Practical Approach to the Art of Professional Character Modeling (Wordware Applications Library)
Maya 8 Character Modeling: A Practical Approach to the Art of Professional Character Modeling (Wordware Applications Library)
by Gary Oliverio
Edition: Paperback
Price: £35.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit dated now, but still worthwhile..., 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a standalone book for learning to model, this is not recommended. Even though this is written for Maya 8.0 it is still relevant, the jump from say Maya7 to Maya2010 will not leave you bewildered, you will familiarise yourself in minutes.

As far as learning to model, this book was brilliant when I was learning how to poly model.

I think the only thing this book doesn't teach is how model form and anatomy aesthetics. The female model looks kinda horrible for me, but of course this won't harm your learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, should be more of these..., 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried to get all the french/engligh parallel books available on amazon and this one is the best. There is another, its name I forget, that has stories that are older. This book newer and so more modern...

Both books are good and I suggest french learners to get all the parallel books you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin', 5 May 2010
This review is from: NBA 2K9 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Game rocks, control system rocks, look and feel is awesome. I used this game to understand the rules and how basketball is played and I was not disappointed. I will be getting 2010 now...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great art.... mostly, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Half the art in this book is to die for. There are also great descriptions of ideas and story accompanying the art.

I wasn't too big a fan of the cg paintover art ...I would have prefered more original art. But overall the colours and art in this book are worth getting it. The film is lovely and getting a peak at the what it takes Pixar to make a film like this is wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 and half stars for this awesome book, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This doesn't get the 5 stars for me because I couldn't get it in Hardback. HBs last longer and preserves artbooks better.

As far as content, the art in this book is superb, the artists are geniuses and I love their style.
