Pavement Chalk Artist: The Three Dimensional Drawings of Julian Beever by Julian Beever

Mostly visual, so this is a delight to page through. It’s all the drawings this guy does that look 3 dimensional from a particular angle (you’ve probably seen online the marching Lego army). Full size pictures are on each page, then on another page the picture is smaller with a paragraph about the making of the drawing.
I’m totally impressed and amazed by these drawings, so I liked them. I enjoyed his introduction-how he got into doing this-but I wish he talked a little bit about the commercial aspect, since clearly many of the pictures were commissioned by companies. Oh, and apparently there was a German tv show about him. I think this came from the Quick Picks list.
