    I wonder if this is regional; I live on the West Coast and was hesitant to order from Amazon when the product page said "ships within 2-4 weeks" or something of that nature, but I ordered anyway and it was in my hands within early the next week. As of right now, FDFAiW is definitely in stock. No delay messages anymore.

    Also, if you check the back flap of the dust jacket, Titan plans to release almost every other publication... except The Eye of the Painter. I wonder why that is.

    I spotted this as well, I was confused lol. I can't tell you for certain but I believe it's wrong. The full figure next to the list labels the pectoralis major but the zoomed in drawing says the same muscle is the lattisimus dorsi.

    Yeah, its wrong. I have a copy from 44 (it was first published in 43) and the error is there too. Wow, an almost 70 year typo, that has to be some kind of record. It was continuously in print from 43 to the late 70's.

    Hey guys and gals - just wanted people to know that the reprint of Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis is available at the Book Depository.

    http://www.bookdepository.com/Creati.../9781845769284

    I pre ordererd it a few months ago expecting it later in the year, and it seems it's turned up early.
    I've double checked Amazon before posting and can't find a similar listing, so if you have always wanted to get a physical copy of this, bloody go for it!

    Here's a pic to show you what a beast it is.

    Successful Drawing

    Does anyone have a copy of the new Successful Drawing reprint from Titan books? Do you know if it is reprinted from the original Successful Drawing or from the revised version called 3 Dimensional Drawing? The original revised version has 16 more pages of technical tips called Putting Perspective to Use and I'm wondering if Titan was aware of the revisions and change of title.

    I have a reprint, but I don't see any sections with that name. The reprint has 160 pages and a 1951 copyright (as well as 2012).

    I have original copies of both volumes. That's too bad because the revised edition was printed in 1958 and replaces the gallery with useful technical information for putting perspective to work in your pictures with examples.

    In the intro to the book Loomis says:

    Most of the material in this book was first published in 1951 under the title Successful Drawing. In this edition, sixteen pages of new technical material on the all-important subject of perspective have been substituted for a purely pictorial section called 'A gallery of Drawings' and certain other changes and corrections have been made.The title Three Dimensional Drawing was given to the revision as representing much more accurately than the former title, the real scope of the work.
    The purpose of all these changes is to make the book more valuable to practicing artists; I can only hope that it has been successfully accomplished.

    Andrew Loomis 1957

    Maybe we should let Titan know so they can publish it the way he wanted it to be. I doubt it is worth publishing both volumes for sixteen pages. I'm sure they are doing print on demand so it shouldn't be that big of a deal.
    Maybe they could extend the new version leaving in the gallery and adding the other replacement chapter and bump the page count to 176.

    Just emailed them and asked for the inclusion of the extra chapter we will see if they even respond to me.

    sorry for hijacking this thread but i thought i'd let people know that Fun with a Pencil is available now on amazon. My local bookstore says they don't get it till Thursday this week though. Guess I'll have to wait a couple more days
