Five books to inspire you to draw

I was happy to be invited to select five inspirational books about drawing for Shepherd, the website that's like roaming around your favourite bookshop. Follow this link to the Shepherd site to find the reasons why I chose each one. It's a rich field to choose from and it was hard to select just five: these are the ones that rang my bell the loudest as I chose. In no particular order:

Ways of Drawing: Artists’ Perspectives and Practices, edited by Julian Bell, Julia Balchin and Claudia Tobin (Thames & Hudson)

Je Suis le Cahier: The Sketchbooks of Picasso, edited by Arnold Glimcher and Marc Glimcher (Atlantic Monthly Press)

The Art of Urban Sketching: Drawing on Location Around the World, by Gabriel Campanario (Quarry Books)

Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now, by Isabel Seligman (Thames & Hudson)

Drawing Projects: An Exploration of the Language of Drawing, by Mick Maslen and Jack Southern (Black Dog Publishing)
