Good. 4th Edition. A good copy with a tight and square binding. Text is clean and bright. Softcovers are good but are mildly soiled. Previous owner's name is written on first front end paper. Top edge has foxing (speckling). Sorry, too large for expedited or international.
Illustrated. Good. Paper. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. The soft cover has light shelf wear with fade...A few of the pages has highlight....Light yellowing pages....Heavy book...................We are very careful when we list our books, but sometimes something minor may get by.
A must have to every art teacher, student, art lover. Objective analysis of different art expressions through time; teachings on art basics and golden rules, (from balance, harmony, subject, concept, form, color, ....., everything). Helpful color images as examples through the teachings. Clear structure.

good basic book
I am a new art student and this book is required in a class. It is a good fundamental book. It covers many different styles and has a lot of examples by famous artists within each discipline. Good book for a low Alibris price.

The Best Book for Artists
This is the most comprehensive book for artists. I have purchased copies for my adult art students, and I have used the principles for my students who are children. The principles are direct and well written. I recommend every artist own a copy of this book.
