This is a remarkably crisp booklet published by the publishers of Ceramic Monthly Magazine. It's a stand-alone booklet which discusses design and method for ceramic artists.

16 Schattschneirder, Doris; Walker, Wallace M.C. Escher Kaleidocycles (1987)
Corte Madera, California Pomegranite Artbooks 1987 Revised Edition Card cover Fine condition 
I was delighted to find this booklet! Escher was a Dutch graphic artist who somehow managed to marry mathematics and art. He died in 1972 and this book appeared first in 1977 and reappeared in a revised edition ten years later. The text is divided into three parts: In Three Dimensions, Extensions of E.C. Escher; Notes on the Models; and Instructions for Assembly of Models. Topics cover geometric solids, kaleidocycles, repeating designs, surface design of kaleidocycles; coloring the designs; hexagonal kaleidocycles; square kaleidocycles and twisted kaleidocycles.The authors promise that taking a flat design and manipulating it into three dimensions will reveal many surprises. Booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11-1/4" and has 57 pages. Crisp and clean as new. Only fault is some toning to top of both front and back cover. Otherwise pristine.

Newcastle-upon-Tyne Frank Greham 1978 soft cover Very Good 
Not much is found on the art of making walking sticks, but this little booklet seems to do the trick.

19 Tyler, Margaret Yard Bringing Portraits To Life by Margaret Yard Tyler (1966)
Montclair, New Jersey A Yard School iof Art Publication 1966 Third printing Card cover Good-plus 
This oversized booklet is a portraitist's dream come true, but the ideas apply to painting, drawing, landscapes or objects. The book covers procedures, equipment, stance, bone structure, point and counter-point, simplicity of method, facing your model, establishing cheek bones, placing head, angles of the hair line, establishing neckline, placing the features, summing up values, bringing the charcoal potrait to life, and introduction to color. Book is spiral bound with heavy card cover and lovely paper. It measures 10" x 12" and has pristine pages. Faults are these: a small abrasion on the top front cover, a small brown sticker next to it which I am afraid to remove, a former owner's name written at upper corner of half title page. the owner also made a folder and glued it inside the back cover and filled it with a couple art instruction articles. Overall a nice addition to the artist's book collection.
