    Andrew Loomis

    I had no idea it was so hard to get hold of a copy of Figure Drawing For All It's Worth.

    How many of you out there own this obvious...collectors item? Where is the best place to get it? I've seen it go for over $100!

    I'm going to be hitting the local used book stores, maybe I'll find a diamond in the rough eh?

    My mum picked up a copy for AU$2 at an op-shop about a year ago. Op-shops, used book stores and such are your friend.

    for anyone who might be interested... I'm a disgruntled third shifter at a copy place and was thinking about printing these for a little side cash. I was thinking 5$ a book plus whatever shipping is. Anyway if your interested hit me up with a private message.


    also if this is inappropriate or anything like that feel free to delete this

    cool link pity with the Vilppu books you have to wait an hr before downloading each one and you can only open em once you have all 3 I have to wait to 1 hr to get part 3. should be worth it. the book was not on amazon cool find.
    Cmoreland.....stupid suggestion why not just print the pdf loomis, I did that have the book in a folder it's cheaper than buying the book the loomis ones anyway they are an insane price.

    tomwaits4noman....because I am a geek ;-p

    I suppose I could print em out.

    Anyone like the Anatomy for the Artist book? It's a big yellow book by Jene or someone like that. Nice stuff in there!
