Customer Reviews

Essential tool for high school teachers and professors.  April 7, 2011
by


I purchased this book at the beginning of the semester and have found it an invaluable resource. This is my first term as a graduate student, and I don't think I could have survived had it not been for this book. It gives useful commentary, helpful hints and a terrific reference section for footnotes and bibliographies. It addresses real problems that often occur in writing an art history paper and provides insightful solutions that encourage independent thinking. It also includes a section on essay exams which gets a quick read through when I take a test. This book was an excellent resource. As a college student, it made writing my papers so much easier!
I had several "a ha!" moments when reading it for the first time, and now I keep it within arm's reach whenever I write.
The price was cheap; I made the purchase I was glad that I had. I received it days before the estimated time of arrival.

Summary

For art courses where there is a writing component. This best-selling text has guided tens of thousands of art students through the writing process. Students are shown how to analyze pictures (drawings, paintings, photographs), sculptures and architecture, and are prepared with the tools they need to present their ideas through effective writing.

This book reprints the instructions for contributors from the Art Bulletin, the most prestigious art-historical journal in this country, and so will be of value for graduate students and recent PhD's preparing their first works for publication.
