I got this book a few weeks ago on Urban Outfitters, I thought it would have a little bit more to read inside. This book is a great coffee table book and is FULL of activities to doodle, sketch, finish a picture, etc.. Would recommend to anyone and could be a great gift to a child interested in art to look at through the years..

This book is really something special. Though it's for all ages, to me it's like a coloring-art-activity book for adults. The best part of it is the way it's been printed; the paper is of excellent quality and everything (from the title page and publisher's info to the text and back cover) is handwritten and gives the book a hand crafted feel. Plus the exercises in it are just wonderful.
