On The Shelves - "The Landscapes" by Richard Schmid
Let me start by saying just this.......This is an AMAZING book! Other publishers should look at this book when they layout all other art books. Not only does this book weigh in at a whopping 11x14 in size, it's also 268 pages with full size images on almost every page, front and back. I'm so sick of having to buy 5-6 books on one artist to get even a decent amount of his/her paintings in my book collection. I keep having to buy larger bookshelves, and I'm running out of room! With most of these books, not only will you get half of the images in black & white and thumbnail size, a large portion of these are writing. Now, I'm all for reading a good book, but when I buy an art book, I expect there to be nice full page color images. "The Landscapes" does not disappoint! The soft cover will run you $75, and expect to pay $150 for the HC. Trust me when I say the book is worth every penny!
