I'm liking these reviews, Dan. Informative in many ways. Great addition to the blog.
Framed Ink is the first “technical” book I've ever read where I never lost interest. Every single page offers insight, whether it's written or pictorial (or both!). Easy recommendation.
Thanks for that! Framed Ink is actually one of my favourite books ever, I wasn't aware of Trail Of Steel though. It's on my Wishlist now:)
Thank you for these reviews. I've been considering if I should buy Framed Ink but wasn't till now certain of its content, you just convinced me to invest in it.
As a side note to others who may be looking to buy it, it's also available from Amazon for about $17
Nice reviews. You should post links to Amazon and get a commission for the web site (like Parka Blogs does).
Man Framed Ink rocks and i also did not know about Trail of Steel. Design Press studios is really shaping up to be a publisher to keep your eyes on, i think. I have missed the other reviews (will hunt them down) but i think it is a definite keeper for the blog.
(on a funny note, for myself, i got a chuckle out of hearing someone with a portuguese sounding surname 'murder' another portuguese sounding surname. 😀 And for all i know Marcos says it exactly how you said it.)
Haha. I know. My name is indeed Portuguese, but Marcos is Spanish I believe. Still, no excuse other than ignorance.
Yeah, I've gone out of my way to specifically keep this blog non-profit. You'll notice we never have any sponsors or ads mucking things up.
However, a link is probably really useful for the readers.
I'll take your advice on future reviews.
This is really really helpful. International shipping on books can often cost as much again as the book itself so I'm not often able to afford a book without first knowing something about the author/artist involved. Actually having someone flip through it and give it a thumbs up is awesome. Thanks. Any books on perspective that you want to review would be awesome as well.

I love this idea I just contacted the Grace Adele sales person by me and asked for her help to enter this contest so that I can try to win my own bag. I have been to some of her parties but have not really been able to purchase anything before. Love this opportunity!! dolor de cabeza
