It's an awesome book, and the author has a very effective way of drawing accurately, BUT.... the projects require more than "a box of crayons". Some of the projects need a variety of shades of browns or blues, etc. So as a result, you're gonna have to get one of those huge sets. But everything else is great! The gallery is amazing and it's so detailed and it looks like it's popping out of the book! Yay Lee Hammond!
