The Artists Illustrated Encyclopedia: Techniques, Materials and Terms. This book provides a good overview of what materials are used for each medium (oil, acrylic, drawing, etc) and provides a shopping list of must have and good to have items. It's been very useful in making sure that I have everything necessary to get started since I don't know these things and a lot of books either gloss over or specify a small list for the project at hand. Very useful for the beginner or even the beginner in a new medium or technique.

Funny duck
It's an encyclopedia! No contents or Index to help with the 486 pages. Remember that crumpled paper you had thrown in the trash...if used in a collage it would be called froissage! The color art works chosen to illustrate the vocabulary are good.
Mine was bought used, very good condition. "Dear Kristen," written in the front cover, Thanks, where ever you are. Book's mine now.

I bought this as a gift. I received one and liked it so much I had to share.
Kendis
Thanks for the people that write these books.
Bearus
It was on time and delivered as I expected. No complains. I would use them again!
Undeyn
Very basic and wordy but wasn't what I was for. Many parts very basic how to I have seen in other books.
Kelenn
This was a gift and the recipient is very happy with it.

He really loves this book and refers to it quite often. It is a very useful tool of the trade.
As an artist, this is the book that I've been in search of for several years! There have been many times that I've run across an art-related term or technique in a magazine or book that was not defined or fully explained. I would attempt to look up the term in my standard dictionary or encyclopedia but I would never find the information I was looking for. This book clearly defines those terms and describes specific techniques and materials in a very simple and detailed way. The book is very much "illustrated" as the title suggests. There are numerous full color photos of tools, materials and beautiful artwork to visually aid in the definitions. There tables that describe art movements, paint comparisons, and how to read paint labels. I also own "The Artist's Handbook of Artist's Materials" by Ralph Mayer. That book is also very good but it is much more scientific in terminology and explanation. "The Artist's Illustrated Encyclopedia" is much easier to understand and the illustrations make it more interesting. It is user friendly because it is alpabetically arranged. I would definitely recommend this book to artists of all levels; beginner to advanced. It is a wonderful addition to my personal library!
