Recommended Art Books - media, technique and genre

I'm a self-confessed art bookaholic and I'm very happy to pass on my recommended art books.  My recommendations are based on my very extensive library of art instruction books about media and techniques and art books about different genre and artists past and present and recommendations from other artists. 

You have two choices:

  • EITHER stay on this website and review the listings in my Amazon book store below
  • OR visit Making A Mark's Art Book Lists  to review the websites on Squidoo which contain all my recommended art books lists for both artists and art lovers

In recommending art books, I've focused on topics which I've written about on my blogs.  These are:

  • FIRST SELECT YOUR CHOSEN TOPIC from the list ABOVE or in the column on the right in the Amazon store BELOW
  • NEXT CLICK A TITLE LINK to find out more about the book and what I think about it and whether or not I've written a review.

All recommended books are part of my Amazon Book Store - in association with  What that basically means is if you value my recommendations and purchase a book, I'm paid a tiny fee for being an Amazon associate.  There's no extra cost for you and it helps me fund the buying of art books!
