Reviews

"Photos, charts, extended captions and selected bibliography supplement author Stille's admirably indexed effort. Color profiles and action paintings offer plenty of modeling inspiration. And a helpful 'analysis and conclusion' neatly ties things up. It's a superb summary of a spellbinding subject."
