In March came the first in our new list of drawing books: The Truth about Drawing book 1 ISBN: 978-0-9928803-6-1.
A stimulating blend of the philosophy of visual art and 10 practical art projects spread over 104 pages in full colour, The Truth about Drawing book 1 gives expert guidance as well as showing the progress of students from a real class working through the projects for themselves. This is a totally new concept in art books – another first from micro indie grassroots publisher, Weaver Designs.
April saw the launch of the sixth book in The Truth about Watercolour series…
The Truth About Watercolour book 6 by Nicholas Ferenczy ISBN 978-0-9928803-5-4 72 pages with over 150 colour illustrations, four step-by-step projects, all with highly-detailed instructions to guide you, as well a ‘compendium of techniques’ – a round-up of all the techniques used so far, plus a few extra ones, the final 4 colour mixing charts to complete the set and a helpful glossary of terms used. Completing the introductory course as it does, book 6 leads the way into more advanced projects to follow in book 7 and beyond.
With November came a new departure for Weaver Designs – our first work of fiction - Oscar the Pike & other (Potteries) Poems ISBN 978-0-9928803-7-8 by Nicholas Ferenczy. This 72pp-book contains 9 poems, some based on the (Staffordshire) Potteries and all illustrated with a combination of digital graphics and drawings.
In December, hot on Oscar’s heels (or caudal fin, more correctly!) came the second drawing book in the series. The Truth about Drawing book 2 ISBN: 978-09928803-8-5 accompanying the second year of a practcial course in drawing (along with The Truth about Drawing book 1) as it does, the book presents another 10 practical drawing projects (including one on drawing from the figure) over 100 pages all in full colour.
