At the same place that I got my lampshade today I picked this book up off the floor and very quickly leafed through it to see it was photos of artwork. I looked on the inside first page and it was marked $1 so I decided it would really come in handy with mixed media...and for that price .. what a deal.
I just finished looking at it closer and it is beautiful. There are over 11,000 , yes, 11,000 pages of beautiful age old art. The page edges are gilded gold, and there is a gold ribbon marker.
When I went on the internet to see if I could find out anything on the book there was only one site listed....a bookstore which had the book listed as
$103.00....so I guess that was a good buy. But even more the contents of different artists' work to look at all in one place.
It is fun to look at pieces I like and wonder how they achieved a certain look, effect, etc. and then
how I might be able to do it with acrylics.... You can learn a lot just by looking and seeing....so this book will get plenty of use.
SOooooo 2 treasures this week.
