About this title


This beautiful book, features 48 facsimile drawings, almost all in color, of Silverman's perceptive images with handwritten commentaries on facing pages by the artist in a 105 page 11x13 inch sumptuous book that faithfully replicates the studio original. It follows in the traditions of the journals of 19th century artists, Degas and Delacroix, and like theirs, Silverman's book substantiates the importance of drawing. It shows what a remarkable and versatile tool drawing is, not only in Silverman's hands, but in the hands of every artist.
