Thanks Dan. I posted that link in one of my first posts (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=45878&highlight=Harold+Speed) a couple of months ago, but not in a very effective place as I realize now. :[
It would be good if there was a central "Outside Links of Interest" thread, preferably a sticky one, for just this sort of link.

Itīs a lot of text, so can anyone tell me what the book is _about_?

Good thing they made it available for free. I'd still buy a copy if i didn't have this yet. Harold Speed has many interesting things to say, this is one of the books you have to read if you are interested in art.
Profil, the books touches on many subjects, composition, values, rhythm etc. Very technical, very good.

its one of the closest insights you can get when it comes to traditional practices in Art, which is not as apparent as before.
