B-art,

Thanks for following up. I might buy the German version anyways just to check it out. If it's a good book then it should pretty much explain itself with the drawings. I have a friend who speaks a little German, maybe I can sit down with him and have it translated.

Hahaha, just like "Back to School" with Rodney Dangerfield. "I've got one question, in 23 parts."

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

Has anyone mentioned Technical Graphics Communications by Bertoline and Wiebe?

It is the text book we are using in class.

Aside from a fairly comprehensive Chapter 4 on the subject of sketching; the rest of the book is awesome containing detailed chapters on multiviews, projections, isometric, and all other matters of the design process.

kind of expensive on amazon, although I purchased it for $70 (including shipping) from half.com

I was just leafing through this book the other day at Artmart. Which sketches were yours? Congratulations on the publication of your sketches! I thought it was a decent drawing book overall.

This book is mainly about Adobe Illustrator and it's application for technical art. Has a decent section on rendering/shading... Good reference. Kinda expensive, so buy the used one. Hope someone finds it useful.

Just wanted to let you guys know about a great new book that was just released in October. It is much like Design Sketching in that it provides brief information about actual drawing techniques but contains about twice as many examples. It has lots sketches and renderings from Dutch schools and firms. Quite nice.

Sketching
Drawing techniques for product designers

There are product pages on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk where it should be out soon, or at the publishers.

Why do all the good design drawing/sketching books come out of Europe? Who cares, this will be another great read and reference. Thanks for posting it kepano.

This was supposed to be distributed in the US by Ginko Press but it's been delayed.

Is there anywhere that sells this? Is it even out yet?

Thanks

Not sure if it was mentioned yet, but the Carl Liu book is like sketch p0rn;

Innovative Product Design Practice: Carl Liu Design Book
ISBN-10: 0955605709
ISBN-13: 978-0955605703

It's just great sketch, after great sketch, after great sketch... and some nice, simple, clear tutorials. As far as I know the one I got is the 2nd edition (black cover, I think 1st edition had a white cover).

I think it's hard to find however, I only found one company in the UK who had it.

Got it from a place called Grandville International, based in Middlesex apparently, but I got it through Amazon:

Looks like they only sell that book actually! It'll set you back about £26, best £26 I've spent in a long time.

Frikkin... awesome. I want Carl Liu to adopt me.
