The best book ever for learning about Pen & Ink

I do not usually recommend specific books or products, however, this is one must-have item for anyone interested in learning about pen & ink. The book is: "Rendering in Pen and Ink" by Arthur L. Guptill, edited by Susan E. Meyer.

I was given this book as a gift when I was a teenager and was inspired to start drawing immediately. I still use it all the time to get inspiration or to try a new technique.

It's great for beginners and for experienced artists. It features exercises, and explains techniques as well as providing some of the best work in pen and ink from a variety of fields. Here are a few examples:

This book will provide more than enough material for a strong and engaging unit on pen and ink drawing and rendering. 

I hope you and/or your students get the chance to find inspiration from its pages!
