A Treatise on Wood Engraving, Historical and Practical (1839), combines the practical knowledge of an engraver with the critical inquiry of an historian. Compiled and edited by William Andrew Chatto, an established author with an interest in woodcuts, the book was originally conceived by the wood-engraver John Jackson, who provided the book's more than three hundred engravings. Roughly three quarters of the Treatise is concerned with the historical evolution of engraving, from the Egyptian hieroglyph stamps held at the British Museum through the masterful works of Albrecht Dürer to the decline and reinvigoration of the art in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Practical analysis permeates the text as a whole, with the final section explaining more fully how a block is chosen, cut, and even repaired. The book is therefore of interest to art historians, historians of the book, and even artist practitioners interested in nineteenth-century methods

If you thought drawing meant only black-and-white sketches, think again! Colored oil pencils, crayons, even paints -- they all work, as long as you see the world pictorially and understand the proper techniques. Master the marvelous art of drawing, applying a variety of mediums and styles. Try your hand at landscapes, still lifes, townscapes and buildings, nature, portraits and figures, animals, and the decorative arts -- and tackle the individual challenges each one entails. See how to create perspective, picture plane, and tonal space, and examine how even a sub fie change of composition can affect a drawing's appearance Simple exercises will train your eye to notice detail and appraise the objects before you. Along the way, different drawing techniques are introduced, including continuous line drawing, cross-hatching tonal effects, and pointillism. Hundreds of examples, both from famous painters such as Leonardo, Durer, and Seurat and from beginners like yourself, clearly illustrate exactly how the drawings work. Often, highlighted sections of a drawing point to areas of particular interest.
