    Here are two alternative links to some shots of a Chinese-language book of mostly Russian figure drawings that passed briefly through my hands last year. (You can see bits of those hands in some of the shots - sorry!)

    No problem KA. The first one is still working - just wait for the ten second countdown.

    Norman Rockwell, Illustrator

    Norman Rockwell: My Adventures as an Illustrator (new link)
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/drhuhwxdbid/rockwell.pdf

    And here's an influential book on composition that was requested on another thread. Well-informed legend has it that the book is heavily indebted to the teachings of Frank Reilly.

    Maitland Graves, 1951. The Art of Color and Design.

    Wow ... more stuff here than I could work thru in a lifetime. I'm a big fan of Reilly and Loomis and have almost everything from, or related to the teachings of, these two teachers and illustrators. Thanks for adding a few authors I wasn't even aware of to my library. You guys rock!

    Hey guys,

    So this is totally unrelated but it's very uplifting. I was showing my girlfriend this thread of E-books, and she asked me to quickly read this when on the topic of "free e-books".

    The Missing Piece Meets the Big O

    Very simple, but very awesome, not educational by any means but just go ahead and enjoy it.

    Thanks a bunch for those Loomis links, not to sure on the other ones (the year next to the name is the year the artist passed, or publication of the book?)

    This is great. But, it would be nice if those files at archive.org listed on the first post were in some smaller, compressed format because I am on dial up and it was about two hours to download a 70MB drawing book in .PDF format.

    Any better place to download these books?

    :-)

    Hey, great thread, been reading more of the posts since first discovering it. Could you post those Norman Rockwell links in your main list?

    And this is a place for some more art books though you have to download one page at a time: http://fineart.skuhttp://fineart.sku or is it just 'sk'? http://fineart.sk
    I dunno, been a while since I clicked there.

    I'd like more links on how to draw clothing or understanding how clothing works so I can draw more from my mind rather than having to always have a reference for everything.

    :-)
