A great Book by John Ruskin

Over the last few weeks I have met some amazing talented people through the blogs. We all struggle when it comes to developing our art. I found this on the site I use for uploading the Maungaturoto Matters. It's by John Ruskin one of the greatest artists to have ever lived. It's old, wordy but worth trawling through from the 1800's now less but this is the period when drawing was at its finest (least I think so). Check it out on an evening when you just want to chill out.

  1. Couple ?'s - If I click on the email will it email this document as an attachment? Second..can this document be downloaded to my computer? How do I get Scribd? Do you have to download the program or just go to the site...checked it out this morning but still reading through scribd....I've never seen it before..but then never had to use a program like this....waiting for the book to download on your site....anxiously waiting!

  2. Hey there,

    Just click the rightside button there that should bring it right up. I'm here in the small hours of the morning finishing off the newspaper. To download anything there all you do is sign up with a user account. You don't have to put your details just an email. Go to the publication you want then click download and choose PDF...You are champing at the bit!!! I'll get it done soon as I can. DON'T PANIC!!!

  5. That one was uploaded by another user but it's worth having. The book I'm going to sort out has to be scanned first. But since I'm shirking from work today (it's the school break for a couple of weeks) I'll have a chance to do it and get it on-line for ya.

    Talk soon!!
