Why are we reading art books in the first place?

Posted October 15, 2018 12:07:46Art books have been around for centuries. 

They are often seen as a form of education. 

For instance, in China, the art books were commonly referred to as “kung fu books” (kungfu meaning martial arts). 

“Kung fu” and “martial arts” are also commonly used terms in Japan. 

But it wasn’t until the 1960s that these terms started to gain currency in the US. 

At the time, the American publisher Houghton Mifflin Company began to sell a line of books called “booklets,” which were basically art books that had been created by American artists. 

Art booklets were marketed as educational material and as a way to learn how to draw. 

Houghton marketed a variety of art books, and in 1962, the company introduced its first series, Booklets. 

Booklet readers were expected to learn all the art skills they needed to be successful artists, which included drawing, painting, and sculpture. 

In an article titled, “Art Booklets and The Art of Drawing,” the New York Times described a series of art booklets as being “designed to encourage and encourage artists to become masters of their craft.” 

The art booklets would be available to anyone, including children, for $3.50 each. 

The booklets were meant to teach children about the art of drawing and painting, the basics of composition and shading, and the history of art. 

These books were marketed by Houghtons Houghtons Art Booklets Co. A board member of the company was also the author of “Booklets: The Art and Science of Drawing and Painting,” which is the subject of a new book titled “How to Draw the Booklets” by Holly Fong and Michael T. T. Williams. 

“Art Booklet Co.” Hollywood producer David Spade is the co-author of the book. 

And it wasn’t just HoughTON. 

According to the New Yorker, “Hollywood’s first art book publisher, a New York-based firm called the Houghmans Art Booklet Company, was founded by John Houghson and Mary Houghon, his first wife, in 1962. 

Theirs was an era of mass-produced art books with little regard for the value of the art they were promoting. 

Instead, Houghons booklets are known for their cheap, accessible, and trendy appeal.” 

One author of a book titled Art Bookbooklets and Art of Photography, the late Richard S. Pritchard, said that Hough’s “booklet was the most popular in Hollywood at that time.” 

“He was able to make it easy for his readers to read, because they were buying a book that said, ‘Here’s a cheap, cheap book that’s gonna teach you everything you need to know about drawing and photography,'” Pritchard said. 

Pritzker School of Art & Design director and art historian, Christopher Schaeffer, said Hough was “probably the first major artist in America to create a mass-market art book.” 

Schaeffer said Hought books were “designed to make people feel like they had the power to draw and paint.” But while Hugh’s art books sold well, they weren’t very popular in the art world. 

After a number of books reached a high point in sales, artists started to turn to other sources for art books. 

Many of the most successful artists were drawn to the art book market, and some of the best-selling artists had their own art book series. 

By the late 1960s, the American public had become increasingly interested in learning about the craft of drawing, but artists continued to struggle to sell books that taught people how to use their skills. 

Today, artists are experimenting with creative methods that focus on the creation of art rather than learning the art itself. 

While it is possible to learn the art from art books and other sources, many of these techniques are not as widely practiced as they were a decade ago. 

That’s why, the best art book books for artists are still popular today. 

Here are some of these best art books for artists. 

 #1 Art Book: What You Need to Know About Drawing and Art (Houghtons) (Amazon) By John Hought (Houghts Art Book) In 1961, John Haught and Mary and Michael Hough bought an art book store in the small town of Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan. 

Since then, the Haughts have sold over a million books and their collection of art supplies has grown to over 4,000 items. 

As a result,
