    There's a book by/about August Rodin at the India site that's somewhat interesting.

    The scans of drawings are awful, however, and the text is very opinionated and superficial: "...to Rembrandt beauty is the antithesis between the triviality of the inner envelope and the inner radiance." Oh yeah? Still, not bad for being free.

    Thanks all for your responses! A sticky in the Lounge is a bit of an ask, but if more people like dbc keep reporting back their finds then that will be enough to keep the puppy afloat.

    For anyone else who wants to scour the DLI site, today I found a much higher proportion of working links by searching at http://dli.ernet.in/ and http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/testpage.html instead of at the address I gave above (silly me!). So some more pdf goodness on its way.

    Thanks also to those of you who have taken a look at my new teaching website (link in sig). Loads of links there, especially on colour - please let me know what you think.

    Oh and Shantih, I took a look at your sketchbook - it's definitely mutual!

    Did you even read these?

    I just wanted to warn people not to waste their time by reading "Training of the Imagination", as it is not a work book on training the imagination, as you would assume by the title. It's basically a speech from a school master to other teachers telling them that they should encourage students to think for themselves rather then just have them memorize facts.

    "Essay on Creative Imagination" is of only marginal interest, it is aimed at psychologist, and is of little practical use to artists. Also "why people have trouble imagining clear images" is never answered, what is given instead are three image types, in other words the level of detail in a memory or mental image, if you're curious they are: complete, incomplete, and schematic. The first part of the book has some interesting ideas, from what I could understand, but there isn't much of anything in parts two and three.
    The gist of it is: Experiences form the raw material for the imagination. In unimaginative people these experiences are stored as rote memory, in imaginative people they are distorted, taken apart, and modified to varying degrees. The principle intellectual factor in imaginative people is thinking by analogy, for example an s is like a snake because they're both curvy, or a hand can resemble a gun, and onto more obscure and subjective likenesses. There is no "creative imagination" per se but instead a process which arises from first a want/need, which then follows a search for a solution, and finally a solution or a failure.

    Thanks armando, I've linked to your observations at the listing above. Personally I'd hate for anyone to be dissuaded from making a contribution for fear of criticism, though.

    Here's something of definite significance that I just found today. Lovely scan too.

    Dow, Arthur Wesley, 1913. Composition; a series of exercises in art structure for the use of students and teachers.

    We all love you, briggsy.
    I found this torrent: http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/13678894

    Though I'm currently still downloading it, so I'm unsure of the quality.
    I don't get it.
