Drawing & Understanding Fossils
A Theoretical and Practical Guide for Beginners with Self-assessment
- E. W. Nield, Universities Information Unit, London, UK
A practical manual for the student of palaeontology, giving a grounding in theory, in addition to teaching graphical skills needed to make clear, representative and pleasing drawings of fossil specimens. As most early practical work in palaeontology is graphical the author has sought to teach the basics of graphic art as relevant to each fossil group. Puzzles, exercises and experiments are included, also self-assessment tests to allow students to check their progress.
For first-year undergraduates and 'A' level geology students.
