Over the last two years, I’ve been ordering a really fun art book series, This is <insert artist name>. The series is published by Laurence King.
Artists in this series:
What I find so great about these are the small size, and use a graphic novel approach to present the information. A new idea or point of his career is discussed on 1-2 pages, making it easy to work through in small segments. I’ve been able to recommend this series to art teachers, who like the publication for their students who may not have interest in reading a heavy, academic heavy text.
Take the time to go through this series, and enjoy the illustrations, colour reproductions, and photographs where possible of the time of the artist.
