Reviews

'This is an exciting and unusual book...There are explorations of art, culture, nature, accurate drawing and model making with a wide range of photographs and diagrams. This book is written for the teacher to use with 13/14 year olds and is more of an exploration than a manual but many non-specialists would enjoy this book as well.'
