I like the concept and content of this book a great deal. However, I am quite sorry that I experimented with it as my first art book for Kindle, because I recently saw the "real" book in, yes, a "real" bookstore, and this book was definitely meant to be paged through, on paper pages, and not "accessed" (In addition to my early version of a Kindle, I use the Kindle reader on another device that has great color, high resolution, etc....).
Live and learn. I suppose at some point, I will find the book itself and add it to my bookshelf. Meanwhile, I'll scroll through the pages if I'm killing time, but it is not as satisfying to me, personally, to see the work and even words of so many talented artists on a screen.
This will be my first and last art-related book purchase for Kindle. Novels and other books, no problem, especially for travel.
After reading an earlier review, I do have to say many of the artists here have been in other books. In the Pulse of Mixed Media, I have learned far more about them than I have in those other books. However, there are MANY "new" artists here that I have never heard of before. I'm enjoying my coffee breaks from my own art studio while looking at their blogs and websites.
My only complaints: I wish there were more photographs (some artists do not have photos of their work), and I wish the book could be longer.
Hopefully Seth Apter will come out with another edition?!?
This is a great book.
