Product description

The Beginner's Book of Oil Painting - Adrian Hill (1961) - vintage book by BBC TV artist
 
A nice early 1960s edition of this vintage instructional book for aspiring artists (originally published 1958), by an author "known to millions through his T.V. programmes", with numerous illustrations including some in colour.
 
Although the book shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and thus would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage art-related books.
