Comment: Water damage/staining to top-middle corner/margins throughout otherwise no apparent text marks, binding strong.
The book is kinda small and it’s not very helpful…well for beginners anyway. It’s like they go from a simple step to a really difficult one in a single leap. It’s like okay, let’s go from a circle to a realistic face in one step.
We’re not gonna give exact details, but here’s a picture to get an idea of what it looks like. I didn’t like that. However, it did give me some project ideas. I give it 2 stars.

Drawing for the Absolute Beginner: A Clear & Easy Guide to Successful Drawing (Art for the Absolute Beginner)
This book has many good sketching examples and ideas. Their methods are helpful, too. (I’m always looking at different ways to take a run at a challenge!) There is a certain familiarity to the style and viewpoint to the drawings.
What a contrast to the Betty Edwards’ “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” books, as the emphasis here seems to be on the object d’art, whereas in Ms. Edwards’ lessons the results seem to be more about the setting for the object (cat; car; truck; dog; face; full-figure).
By this I do not mean one way is ‘better’ than the other, just that there are differences. As I say, always good to look at alternative methods and results.

“Pencil Sketching” is one more thoughtful effort from a very knowledgeable guy. I share his passion for making graphite marks on a “toothy” paper.

I like this book for myself. But because it stated beginner I thought it would have the starting concepts and easy sketches for teaching my talented pre-teen. The basic concepts were brief in the beginning and then it went straight to a much harder level of drawing.
I like the book, but not for this age group.

How to Draw: 53 Step-by-Step Drawing Projects (Beginner Drawing Books)
This is supposed to be for beginners but it sure assumes you know a whole lot about art and drawing which is the reason why I buy books that state they are for beginners. They have you draw a portrait from a photo with no step-out for eyes, nose or lips.
Kind of important stuff to be taught before you can do a portrait. Complicated still life and landscape with reference photo of beginning, middle and end results with little to no guidelines. And it is extremely thin, not very many pages.
Don’t waste your time or your money.

This project book is nice to refer to. However, for a real, never done this before, beginner, it is way above my knowledge level, which is basically null! I’m a REAL beginner, and I probably am strictly left-brained, because I could NEVER draw to this level at my stage of “beginning”.
However, for those of you who have a micron of artistic ability, this book would help you with shadowing, lighting techniques, and other skills that are not contained in my brain cells.

I bought this book as a replacement for one of the first editions that I checked out of the library and damaged it. (Long story). Anyway… the second edition is better for beginners and very clear. It is helping me to start Urban Sketching which is what I wanted to do for a long time.
I am happy to find this resource for my classes. It is nice for the ideas if provides for class. Thanks for the easy transaction.
