Free downloads of books by illustrator Andrew Loomis

Andrew Loomis was one of the premier illustrators of the 20th century. If you're lucky enough to have one of his now out-of-print, art-instruction books, you have a real treasure. For those who don't have these fabulous books, the blog "Escape From Illustration Island," has provided links to PDFs of six of them. The amount of work that went into scanning in the pages of these books was huge. They're in the public domain, so it was OK to copy and distribute them.

June 14, 2014, note: the PDFs are no longer available at the link above. They are now on this "Illustration Age" page.

Here's an image of one of the pages in "Creative Illustration."

"Creative Illustration," page 173.
