4.0 out of 5 stars Great except for... June 17 2010
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
This book seems like a great resource for artists of all skill levels, but for a book this expensive I expected better quality paper. It's printed on plain white paper that's thinnner than computer paper. There are only 12 glossy pages printed in color and that's Chapter 10: Color Rendering, the rest is all in black and white on this cheap paper. I guess maybe my expectations were too high, I'd still recommend it, just be warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book July 11 2012
By J. Sherrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bina Abling's Fashion Sketchbook is a wonderful book for all fashion design students learning or re-learning to draw the fashion figure. This book is comprehensive with examples of women's, men's, and children's wear sketching. The drawings and illustrations in the book are very clear and inspiring. This is one of the important books I recommend to my students at FIT and Pratt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion Illustration Made Easy June 27 2013

Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
Ms. Abling has done an excellent job illustrating how to illustrate, for apparel. The workbook-like format is easy to follow and instinctually laid out. She explains the materials needed, and the techniques she uses to create lovely illustrations. A must-own for any fashion design student.

As a side-note, she also has several great YouTube videos explaining some of her techniques as well. They're a nice supplement to this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great basic information and it also delves into additional fashion facts. Like the illustrations. Variety of types of clothing. March 10 2013

Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
Great basic information and it also delves into additional fashion facts. I am impressed with the illustrations and the various types of clothing featured. I think it is above much of what is currently available, I rather think of it as a fashion bible.
