SERIOUSLY? This book is absolutely incredible. Everything you can possibly need as a resource for helpful tips and instructions on fashion illustration are in this book. EVERYTHING! I even found step-by-step instructions, in detail, on the 9 head proportions for male croquis. This is the first time I have been able to find a book that demonstrates this. Every finish, every fabric type, every type and style of of garments, garment pieces, outerwear, under garments - it's all there with detailed instructions. I love this book and it was worth every penny. If you are a design student, think of this as an investment in your career. You'll keep it for the rest of your life!

I just received this in the mail, and I am SO glad I've held out on getting this book!! The 4th edition is so much better than the 3rd!! Not only does it add instructions and step by steps for PhotoShop renderings, it includes a CD that has a video of the author herself doing a step by step of a basic croquis. The book is very daunting at over 500 pages, but the video on the disc gets directly into it and makes it easier to move forward in the book. It throws a lot of information at you at once. LOVE IT though. So glad I have it!

My niece couldn't thank us enough. She is attending fashion school and has a class being taught by the author of this book. My niece had it signed by Nancy.

This book was recommended by my fashion illustration teacher and for a good reason! The step by step instructions were very easy to follow and it had a lot of inspirational images to incorporate into your own sketches.
