I laughed when I saw this Dummies Book. Who doesn't know how to color? Me. Chapter 1 has lots of information about choosing materials and techniques to use as you color. Markers, colored pencils, crayons & watercolors can be used to create different effects like dotting, hatching, texture and depth. Very helpful in making coloring more enjoyable. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight

Published: Steidl - September 30th, 2014

A remarkable collection of street photographs that perfectly capture the unique character of a New York City that doesn't exist any longer. In the years between 1980 and the mid-90s, the city was awash in a wonderful sleaziness, but the flashpoint violence that often splayed blood over the dirty sidewalks was a constant reminder of the danger lurking there. Mr. Savulich's camera records the horror and the heartbreak with a gritty immediacy that is frequently shocking and totally unforgettable. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
