Shelves: art, nonfiction
There is so much information in here that the book could be used as a text. That said, it would make a wonderful shelf reference for any sort of artist. This is a go-to book for background on types of art, principles of deign, color and more. The writing is clear and the examples make the writing even more comprehensible.
