I found this book to be a very fascinating how-to manual. A lot of the terms, however, would have been lost on me if were not for my Making of Art Supplies class. This is definitely not a book for the beginner to pick up and start making art supplies. Very useful for the Renaissance Faire attendee looking for a way to polish up an artist character.

A hand book for the fine artist. Art, drawing, computers, images of the mind all come together when we understand the skills that go into making a creative work. Hear the voices of Fifteenth Century craftmen. Try to understand their times and you will understand the how the skills of the Old Masters were aquired. If you are a serious artist, then take the opportunity to experience silverpoint drawing. Look for silverpointpanel on the web.
