From "Plant-Form." (Mr. B. T. Batsford, Publisher.) and to harmonise with the given lines of the space, which arc of course the controlling lines of the composition. Having decided upon these, suggest with charcoal or soft pencil where the masses or interesting spots will occur, taking care that these also balance; they should generally fall at the most important divisions of the space. Again, the student may begin by placing the masses of the design first, and then connecting them by suitable lines. A third way is, mentally to work out the design before putting pencil to paper; but as this is not usual with students, as it requires long experience to accomplish it, one of the two former ways will be safer and quicker."
The volume is neatly bound, faultlessly printed on excellent paper, and in all respects worthy of inclusion in our list of works of permanent value for an art worker's library. (London: B. T. Batsford, publisher, 94, High Holborn. 5s. net.)
