This ever popular handbook is aimed at students and others who wish to learn the techniques of artefact illustration, regardless of their level of ability or previous experience. It has been written and illustrated by three experienced practitioners who, since 1984, have conducted an annual Summer School course 'Drawing Archaeological Finds' at the Institute of Archaeology, London.
The text includes comprehensive advice on many aspects of archaeological artefact illustration from the equipment and materials required by the archaeological illustrator to the preparation of finished artwork for the printer. The bulk of this profusely illustrated volume covers the varying techniques required to overcome the difficulties often exprienced in attempting to accurately translate three dimensional objects (of metal, ceramics, organic materials, flint and stone tools, bone etc.) into two dimensional illustrations.
