    lookin' for artbooks, Rembrandt's sketches

    I went to the local Borders where I live, all they had were expensive hardcovers of his paintings. My art teacher had these thin paperbacks that just had on each page his sketches, that was the sort of thing I am looking for.

    Maybe art stores would have that sort of thing, though I haven't looked yet.

    I've always personally admired Rembrandt mostly because of his drawings and etchings (yes, I do love his paintings too) and I bought through amazon this cheapish book called 'Drawings of Rembrandt' that has 300 sketches from the man in there. It's a two volume set (totaling 550 sketches), but I only have the first one. One drawing on every page, mostly pen and brush, some chalk etc.
    Publisher is Dover, and isbn is 0-486-21484.
    check it out.

    edit - I would love to hear about other / better books out there that are worth it.

    check the Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread (Sketchbook)
