Book Description

Feb. 15 2012 Dover Fine Art, History of Art
"The studies are not a stolid assimilation of facts, however, but rather a poetic exploration of the forms, freely and directly made from the model for his own use in the finished illustrations." — Walt Reed, Illustrator in America 1860–2000
In 1920, a well-known illustrator compiled hundreds of his preliminary studies of costumed models. He photographed them and produced two portfolios that offer a revealing look into an expert's technique. Students in need of suggestions and assistance related to figure drawing will find here exactly the sort of help they seek — the position of the body in walking and sitting, the pose of a hand and position of an arm, facial expressions of every variety, and a host of other postures and attitudes.
This new edition marks the first time Arthur Keller's Sketchbook has been made available since its original publication. Although it features no descriptive text, the energy and expressiveness of its studies will instill in art students and professionals a higher appreciation of the rendering of the draped figure. In addition to its appeal to fine art enthusiasts and seekers of art instruction, this volume will also serve as a source of inspiration for fashion designers and costumers.
"His preliminary studies show a mastery of drawing, the result of his lengthy and thorough training. He became an accomplished artist whose work was compared to the French master Watteau." — Arpi Ermoyan, Famous American Illustrators

I am an illustrator and a friend showed me this book: I was blown away.
Now that I have my own copy, I like it even more. The printing is good with good gradations of black to white in the illustrations.
If there was another I'd get it in a heart beat.
