Review by: Stacy Palm
I thought this was a "cute" book, and please understand that I spent quite a good deal of time coming up with the perfect word that suited this book. I adore art books and if you are like me and spent any amount of time scouring the shelves for art books to consume you understand that these are generally enormous tomes filled with large scale renditions of beloved works. So you will also understand why this is a mixed review - I simply wasn't expecting the book I received.
The book itself is very small in size, I believe around 5x7 inches. So I was a little disappointed by this at first. After having time to adjust my expectations I realized this was a very handed sized book to have around. It is fulled with many paintings, and it has a very functional locator key for each painting. While actually painting one night, I put the book next to me and found that I began to appreciate the size, which didn't take up much space on my work table, was easily functional for locating examples of techniques, and was overall quite the handy little book to assist in my artistic adventure.
If you are looking for a book to inspire you or simply a small book to keep on a table for guests this is a really good purchase. Just do not expect your "typical" art behemoth.
