No comment in the book or on the website explains how Ruskin was, in addition to being an artist one of the most important art critics ever.  His famous court battle with Whistler should be investigated by everyone in the arts. There are few illustrations in this book but there are a exercises that if followed can teach an artist methods and concepts critical to the creating any visual work.  This book is a classic.  It rivals the well known book The Natural Way to Draw by Nicolades.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to download and read.
