Item description for Approaches to Archaeological Illustration: A Handbook (Practical Handbooks) (Practical Handbooks in Archaeology) by Melanie Steiner & Lindsay Allason-Jones...
This handbook is primarily designed to raise standards and is intended for students and for those working in archaeological illustration. It is a showpiece of some fine illustrators, working in quite different ways. Drawings of objects, made from different materials are shown at their original drawn size as well as at their subsequent, reduced, published scale, so that the techniques used by the draftsman can be clearly seen and appreciated. Objects are described - often by specialists - and then the illustrators themselves describe their different drawing methods and approaches - giving step-by-step guides to how the illustrations were put together.

Review of Archaelogogical Illustrastion Book Nov 5, 2006
Very helpful. Actually shows examples of artifacts, how they were drawn, computer programs used (when applicable), what medium they used. The book also makes a point of showing artifacts made of different components ie: glass, wood, metal, bone, etc. Very well written, excellent! Also comes with a list of Arch. Ill. Soc., clubs, etc.
