Over 1000 illustrations in colour and black and white make the twelve lessons a pleasure to look at with historical examples, student do's and don'ts, equipment, materials, techniques, exercises, and hundreds of projects to do at your own pace, each planned to show some aspect of the varied and visual world of the creative imagination.''
