Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This juicy book is 22 pages of text explaining why there is no text, 180 pages of inventive drawings that invite the viewer to juxtapose the relationship. For someone who draws this is `pure looking' and seeing what's around them. A lexicon of beauty and styles that shape questions about our perceptions and why we choose to look at particular scenes. When you think, `I just don't know what to draw?'

The interview in the beginning gives an amazing insight and account into Glaser's progress as a visual explorer. He's accomplished so much in his life with a myriad of techniques and clients, yet he's still experimenting, which is the fun part of trying to figure out the story and narrative of his visual sequence. Very cool.

If you're a fan of Glaser, this shouldn't be much of a decision for you. This is stripped down and gets right to what you're interested in. I might gripe that it's not the very best deal in the art book world, but the reproduction quality is perfect.
