Sketchbook '76 (Re: Common Sense)
- Sketchbook '76 is very outdated and knowledge has progressed in the 42
years since it was printed, but for the price it's not bad...as long
as you weed out the good from the bad. Yes, there are things like the
Federal period knapsack in there which should be avoided, but there
are still some things you can glean from it.
