    Bargue Books?

    Can anyone recommend good quality and preferably affordable books of Bargue drawings or a similar 19th-century Academic book? I suppose I could just print out high-resolution photos of Bargue drawings but there's something about having a collection of his drawings in a book that really appeals to me. A book that closely resembles something that a student in the 19th century would draw and learn from (so preferably one that has a specific progression - facial features to full faces to body parts to full figures, etc) would be most excellent.

    Thanks.

    Actually when it was on Amazon it was cheaper than the Museum price. It was going for 60-65. So just keep an eye out.

    I recently saw Lumen Picturae: A Classical Drawing Manual at my local B&N. Its from the 1600s and its all engravings rather than lithographs, so not as applicable to charcoal or graphite as Bargue, but its a beautiful book, well printed and affordable.
