I love black & white art! It was this love that first prompted me to pick up a pencil and draw. It was this love that made it hard for me to review Drawing in Pen & Ink. I didn't want to review it with a critical eye. I didn't want to read it. I just wanted to look.

Most drawing books are illustrated texts. This one is a collection of illustrations that are accompanied by just enough text to tell you exactly what you need to know.

The 9 x 11 1/2, paperbound book assumes you know nothing at all about pen & ink drawing. It starts with the basics of supplies and how to use them, then proceeds, step-by-step, from basic techniques and exercises through sketching to putting it all together. Each new section starts by explaining what you will be doing and then offers page after page of illustrations accompanied by visually appropriate, hand-written explanations of how techniques have been used, why certain things have been done and more. This is part of North Light's First Steps Series and it offers an excellent teaching text, but in this book it really is the drawings that take center stage.
