    I pre-ordered mine a few months back and just got it in the mail tonight. A big heavy book full of so much wonderful Loomisness. I've only flipped through it so far but I'll probably get a more in depth look soon and maybe post some photos. My wife saw it and was like, "Why do you have a book full of naked provocative women!??" and I was like, "It's for my art," lol. I'm glad I have an understanding wife.

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Thanks for posting the photos. I ordered a copy last night with my fingers crossed that it would be a decent reproduction. Seems to be really high quality from the look of it.

    ...Now where's Creative Illustration at?

    I saw it at Barnes and Noble yesterday. It looks really nice. A little pricey at $40, but I know I'll get it soon.

    I checked at the front desk and Drawing the Head and Hands comes out in October. Didn't hear about the rest, but I'm certain we'll get them sooner or later.

    Guess I know what I'll be doing this summer.

    Adults these days with their Amazons and their Iphones.

    Why, when I reach your age I have to walk 15 miles through the snow to find a Books A Million and hope for the best!

    Finally got it!!!!

    The Book arrived today and wow it's nice ! I've seen an old copy once through interlibrary loan and Titan's version is every bit as good .So nice to have a nice new copy of this classic that one can actually hold and read through instead of burning out our eyes looking at a computer monitor.Thanks Titan and Indigo Books!

    So, I went to a branch of my local favorite bookstore and I squeed when I saw this displayed in one of their step displays. Bought it without a second thought (I was gonna buy The Art of Kung Fu Panda 2).

    It's very good. Clear and crisp reprint. Paper seems a bit more yellow but I guess that added more charm to it. I love how the cover's stiff and strong. And it smells like those old Collier Encyclopedias my auntie used to have.

    Will be enjoying this in the next couple of days.

    Oh wow. I might have to take my pay and order this.
    I prefer print to PDF by far.

    Just FYI for bumping there is a Kindle Ebook Edition - http://amzn.com/B0087QB4KE

    It's five bucks. Kindle you can download a reader for about any platform to read it. So if you guys can't afford the hardcover, at least support the ebook version and encourage more ebook versions to come out.

    Bummer!

    I bought the Kindle version for $4.99 but notice no one bothered to edit the electronic version carefully. There are a lot of miss spellings throughout the book.

    Example from the very beginning:

    "An Opening Chat

    Dear Reader;

    For many years ihe uecd of a further book on the subject of figure drawing has been apparent to me."

    At least it was under $5. Hopefully Amazon released an updated correct version like the new reprinted edition.
