This extensively illustrated book explores materials—many of them three-dimensional objects that virtually jump off of the page—used in art teaching from 1770 to 1950. In the course of gathering her collection, Diana Korzenik traced the methods and materials used to teach artists and amateurs to draw and to see the world around them. The illustrations provide an extensive sampling of these objects, depicting drawing books, crayons, promotional booklets, and three-dimensional teaching aids. Stochastic screening, used in the color printing of the book, gives striking resolution and fidelity to the illustrations. The essays provide evidence of the changing interpretations of art making in the period covered by the collection and offer new perspectives on material culture, art and design, education, and American Studies.
