After a long visit to a book store out of town my daughter did not want to put this book down. She put it on a list for Christmas of course we did not buy it there because we knew we could get it on amazon with out her finding out and possibly a better deal and we got both. When I was at the book store with her I just flipped through the pages and said that looks really nice. Did not pay that much attention in the store at it. We have purchased so many of these books and sets as well.
After receiving this I of course done a good look through at it. My wife being an art lover enjoyed this one as well and understood why my daughter wanted it so bad! Lately we have been running accross the style drawing books that your child decorates the clothes on the dolls body which is already drew and then you have those boring step by step books with no flare to bore you to death. With a child that is way past those steps it is hard to keep them enjoying what they like to do when they are not inspired. This book is great for inspiration. Well we think it is for our daughter. She is not allowed to get into the TV drama stuff so what she likes is what she learns fom books. She also likes to make her designs to doll size designs and actually sew them into doll clothes for her American girl dolls. Anyway back to this wonderful book It is worth every penny and alot more.
This one shows:
creating texture, drawing techniques,color basics a color wheel,fashion terms, fashion textures, Figure proportions, poses heads hands .......... so much more. Then it gets into fashions from new styles to some vintage styles. Also body templates. All I can say is I think once she gets this she will be busy for a long time with it. I am glad she found it.
The flare in the book was very inticing and the styles were wonderful. This would be a great book for any age. My daughter is 10 but I could see young adults even enjoying if it was something they wanted to get into.
