My Favourite Book about Design and Composition
From my review: "This is a book which you can come back to again and again. It's a 'basics' book for those wanting to learn more about composition and design and it can also act as a 'pick you up' for more advanced artists who feel they're getting stale and need a visual boost.
For more information see my websites about books about composition and colour:
