How Artists See... is a book series I have had for many, many moons. It is copy right dated 1996, but I don't believe I've had it that long. ha ha I've used the books in lessons and to inspire one of my spring all school art shows many years ago. I was contacted in the fall by the publishing company if I wanted to have copies of the 2nd Edition of the book. Lets think about this....YES!!! I really was curious to what changes had been made.
THE 2nd EDITION IS BEAUTIFUL! There are several new images included which I really enjoy.....but THE COLOR!!! I noticed right away when I started comparing the books (old & new) that the images that were the same....the color is dramatically better in the new edition! Also I feel Colleen Carroll's descriptive writing that accompanies the images is spot on, and I think extremely beneficial for young readers to explore. They are great resources for your art library!
