The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques was originally published in 1940, and it has been an invaluable reference for artists and art students ever since. Through many updates and editions, it has remained a Bible-like source for painters, sculptors, and printmakers. This updated version has been expanded to reflect contemporary art movements, research, and technology. It has retained its original user-friendly format, however. Similar to an encyclopedia, it’s meant to be referred to often. Within its pages, artists will find information on a wide variety of mediums, including basic information and more advanced, technical material. Find retail sources for materials, a pigment catalog, a bibliography, and an appendix. It also has a detailed index to easily and quickly look up information. Author Ralph Mayer. Hardcover. 784 pages. 9½"H × 6½"W × 2¼"D (24 cm × 17 cm × 6cm).
