    Really Cheap and Really Useful Books for Illustrators

    We are going to do something a little different for today’s post. I recently picked up a copy of The Anatomy of Costume from Amazon for the enthralling price of 1 pence. A perfectly good book, in a perfectly acceptable condition. This got me thinking, how great it would if there were a whole list of useful art books that were being sold for a penny? I did a little Google-fu to see what was out there already, after not finding anything I decided to make my own list and share it with you, my fellow Loungers.

    Ingvard The Terrible

    Rarely am I completely blow away by an artist, but every now and then I find one that does. Ingvard The Terrible is a very talented “Illustrator” and self proclaimed “Viking” and “root beer enthusiast”, “Born the last of five mighty sons to a Danish mother and Swedish father.” His main focus is children’s book illustration however he is also very adept in graphic design. Other than Ingvard’s epic style his overall brand as an illustrator is nothing but pure adventure.

    Do you remember those beautiful history books on Roman and other ancient cultures with the acetate pages revealing the inside of buildings? Well, This should refresh your memory.
