I'm liking these reviews, Dan. Informative in many ways. Great addition to the blog.
Framed Ink is the first "technical" book I've ever read where I never lost interest. Every single page offers insight, whether it's written or pictorial (or both!). Easy recommendation.
Thanks for that! Framed Ink is actually one of my favourite books ever, I wasn't aware of Trail Of Steel though. It's on my Wishlist now:)
Thank you for these reviews. I've been considering if I should buy Framed Ink but wasn't till now certain of its content, you just convinced me to invest in it. As a side note to others who may be looking to buy it, it's also available from Amazon for about $17
Nice reviews. You should post links to Amazon and get a commission for the web site (like Parka Blogs does).
Yeah, I've gone out of my way to specifically keep this blog non-profit. You'll notice we never have any sponsors or ads mucking things up.However, a link is probably really useful for the readers.I'll take your advice on future reviews.
Man Framed Ink rocks and i also did not know about Trail of Steel. Design Press studios is really shaping up to be a publisher to keep your eyes on, i think. I have missed the other reviews (will hunt them down) but i think it is a definite keeper for the blog.(on a funny note, for myself, i got a chuckle out of hearing someone with a portuguese sounding surname 'murder' another portuguese sounding surname. :D And for all i know Marcos says it exactly how you said it.)
Haha. I know. My name is indeed Portuguese, but Marcos is Spanish I believe. Still, no excuse other than ignorance.
This is really really helpful. International shipping on books can often cost as much again as the book itself so I'm not often able to afford a book without first knowing something about the author/artist involved. Actually having someone flip through it and give it a thumbs up is awesome. Thanks. Any books on perspective that you want to review would be awesome as well.Cheers.
