  1. An inspirational gem of a book review by Tim on 12/31/2015

    As we have come to expect, this edition of Strokes of Genius is packed with first rate, very diverse and inspirational drawings. What I also greatly value in this volume is the outcome of each of the artists responding to the question "Drawing is........?" Answers are published alongside their drawings, and the comments prompt us to recognise the critical value drawing has in their art practice and for their lives.

  2. Visual feast of drawing review by Christine on 6/16/2014

    Don't ever let anyone tell you that drawing is the "poor relation" of painting. This book runs through all the major genres, showing exactly what stupendous results drawing can achieve. The majority of the work is monochrome, but don't let that put you shows how beautiful monochrome can still be, even in a world where everyone expects things to be full of multi-colour technicolour.
    I think it is also important not to be TOO over-awed by what the artists have achieved.... use the book as inspiration, to do your own thing. Highly recommended as a visual feast.
