Well, who wouldn’t want a book like this?
In fact, it’s the instruction, rather than the drawing, that’s been simplified. Christopher Hart has a neat way of moving from simple outline shapes to the finished result and, while this is not a complete innovation, I haven’t seen it applied so completely across such a wide range of subjects.
There is an issue, though with three-dimensional subjects and perspective, with which Christopher doesn’t seem completely confident. Strangely, that evaporates when it comes to faces and figures and these, as well as the simplicity with which they’re explained, I’d say are worth the purchase price on their own.
