A practical course in pen and ink drawing, this helpful guide includes a comprehensive survey of the best pen work in existence. A wide diversity of styles are presented ― from loose sketches to rich, engraving-like studies. Works from all periods include drawings by such masters as Dürer, Holbein, Doré, Gibson, Rackham, Pyle, Beardsley, and Klinger.
An opening chapter presents the evolution of pen drawing, while subsequent sections allow readers to select topics in self-contained units on line technique; the use of materials, drawing the figure, face and hands; humorous illustration; pen drawing for advertisers; fashion drawing; and landscape and architectural illustration.
An excellent reference for students, this book will also help illustrators and commercial artists further develop their own styles.
