reprinted. One in a series of instruction books by Loomis, a Chicago-based commercial illustrator of the 20th century, this book might be described as his magnum opus. It's the first of his books to deal with colour and composition.
Sections include line, tone, colour, and creating ideas. It is by far the thickest of Loomis's books and before this reprinting, copies sold for over $100.
Titan Books will reprint Fun With a Pencil next April, Loomis's most basic how to draw book. All that will remain, should Titan continue, will be Three Dimensional Drawing, an expanded version of Successful Drawing which they have already reprinted, and The Eye of the Painter and the Elements of Beauty, a book published after Loomis's death. Used copies of that start at $141.
