"Written as a sketching artist's companion, this guide by a noted author of art instruction manuals attests to the value of sketching as a distinct art form rather than just a vehicle to achieve more polished works. The book details advantages of many drawing media, from pencil to watercolor, and their application to depictions of interior studies, figures, and landscapes"-- Provided by publisher.

Kind of interesting, but you should note that this is a reprint of a book from the 1930s, and although the prints are reproduced, it loses some of the charm when the prints are just black and white. The language is lovely.
