This is another of Search Presss bind-ups of previous material and Im still not sure whether Ive reviewed it before or not or maybe in a slightly different guise. Theyve got very good at this latterly and, rather than obvious joins where one book ends and another begins, the whole thing is now seamless. The material may not be new, but its still sound and the reproduction is as fresh as it ever was, so this isnt resurrecting a corpse but bringing excellent material to a potential new audience at a very affordable price. As well as some technical pieces on things like perspective and composition, demonstrations from popular authors cover trees, water, snow, buildings and so on (and on). If you have other books by these authors, youd need to check for duplication but, equally, theres so much here, you probably wont be getting too much cross-over. If you only have a small library and are on a budget into the bargain, you could do a great deal worse than invest in this.
