FAC/Composing Pictures Update

Okay, so suffice to say that after some confusion and turmoil, Dan Caylor has removed the Famous Artist Course pdfs from his blog, not realizing (as I never did) that they were still in business and still using the material that was published decades ago.

He's also removed the "Composing Pictures" pdf from his site. Shoki pointed out that Amazon seems to think that the book will be reprinted in February, which would be a nice surprise.

A big thanks anyway to Dan for doing all of that work with the best of intentions.

Too bad! I was planning to get the composition book! At least I was able to download the FAC.

Lame.

I recall a similar reason offered when the Loomis scans were taken offline a few years ago. "We're planning hardcopy reprints"... which never materialized.

If the Graham book or the 1960 FAC material do make it to print in the coming year, I'll be very surprised.

Good thing I managed to get um both... I have a feeling there will be no reprint. But then they promised it with Walt Stanchfields notes so you never know.

If they do go back on book shelves I'll be certain to buy them.

Is it bad I don't feel guilty for nabbing them when they were up?
