Format: Hardcover
This book is being used by a group of women artists who are studying a wide range of painting styles. There is an incredible range of artists and their techniques to be seen and studied in this book. The bibligraphies are conicse and very informative. Not only does it wett the appetite of the young and old, but it encourages them to delve into and study the artists who interest them and opens up a new world of art hisotry, thus educating even more. A wonderful resource and text book. The reproduction of the paintings are very good and the book is a credit to the two authors.

Love having this book sit out on my coffee table- it's a great conversation starter and I find everybody who visits almost always goes straight to it. Very happy to have it in my collection. The format of the book makes for a simple reference for anyone- familiar with art or not. Product arrived in a very timely manner, and it good condition. No complaints here and highly recommend.

The previous reviewer must be corrected in turn, as "appetite" is spelled with two p's - if I'm not mistaken - and as for "blurb for...," well, it's "blurb on...!"

Just a comment about your blurb for the book:
"... not only does it wett the apetite..." should read,
"... not only does it whet the apetite..."
Thank you.
