An older book to be sure, this massive work by Andrew Loomis is a must-have for anyone seriously contemplating a career in illustration. It is rich with information on layout, composition, colour and traditional media that will provide reinforcement to artists in the 21st century seeking a non-digital foundation to their skillset. While the art is dated and the advice at the end on the illustration market is related more to the world of the 1940s when this book was first published, the exemplars in the book are wondrous in themselves. Loomis was a master of media and could articulate clearly complex ideas in a page or two.

A word of advice. This book is not for light reading. It is meant to be digested in small sections and reflected upon in daily practice that follows. However, bearing up to the task of digesting what Loomis had to offer makes the effort worthwhile.

As a professional artist, I find it hard to find quality art books teaching visual art at a higher level. Most are written for beginners at the level of the lowest common denominator. Most artists don't know that the Illustrators of the beginning of the 20th c were the inheritors of all the artist knowledge of the previous century's that was rejected by the modernest abstract movements of the time.

This book is Loomis' masterpiece. A much welcomed return to print from a long sought after and difficult to find classic on the art and craft of illustration. Don't be fooled into thinking the book may be dated for having been published in the 1940s.. The core knowledge on the art of picture making in the service of narrative is as sound as it ever was. It is that way with Looms' books. His presentation of fundamental art practice is folksy yet clear and concise.Welcome back Andrew Loomis!

This is for people who already know how to draw or paint or whatever... but what to make better "art".
Sir Andrew Loomis will teach you how to compose scenes and illustrate moments, not so much how to draw a dog or a building.

I love his approach on the craft, I find it very similar to my own ways.
Please take into account this book is from the late 1940's so some of the terminology might have changed. Also the mediums, style of drawing and style of presentation might have changed also. I for one am a digital artist, but even though this book has no mention of Photoshop or graphic tablets, it's definitely a read digital illustrators can benefit from. Like I said, it's more of a book on theory, the book is text heavy, there are lots of images in it also but there are no "step by step" / "how to draw" illustrations, mostly just examples.
