While I've always found art texts too tight and limiting, I have found the
Davis Publications art/ed books to be superior to other publishers. They
have a toll free number which I can't find just now and a wonderful
catalogue with some great descriptions. In addition to textbooks, they
also have some great specialty teaching books.
Does anyone have the toll free number off the catalogue handy???
