This book looks at artists personal sketchbooks through the ages. I love seeing what the artist was thinking while dreaming up great works. It contains personal insights that you wont find anywhere else. I purchased this book from Ebay and it was only a few dollars. I have discovered that many or most of the books I like are cheap. I wonder if they are low priced because no one cares to read them or only a certain type of person enjoys them. This book was autographed by the author but it wasn’t even mentioned in the sales ad. If you want to see cheap books go to abebooks.com. I have found books that cost less than the price of shipping.
