Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best-selling text for the two-dimensional design course, DESIGN BASICS presents art fundamentals concepts in full two- to four-page spreads, making the text practical and easy for students to refer to while they work. This modular format gives instructors the utmost flexibility in organizing the course. Visual examples from many periods, peoples, and cultures are provided for all elements and principles of design, and the diversity of illustrations now includes more examples from nature and non-art sources, encouraging students to see these principles in the world around them. This multimedia edition contains all the material found in the stand-alone text and in addition includes icons throughout directing the reader to explore the elements and foundations of art through the interactive exercises found on the ArtExperience: Fundamentals CD-ROM.

Book News Annotation:

Unlike previous editions, which were mostly in b&w, the 6th edition features a wealth of full-color illustrations throughout. The Windows- and Macintosh-compatible CD- ROM contains a variety of interactive modules that are keyed to the text.
