Book I love n. 9


Simply, I had to get this book!

Hans Bacher is the author of “Dream Worlds” a favourite of mine, so as soon as I discovered he had written another book I didn’t esitate a moment. “Visions” is even richer than the first one, it’s full of tips and samples on composition, rythm and camera shots; a deep and complete analysis about the anatomy of images. The book is for everyone interested in pursuing a career in visual arts, from illustration to comics, animation or videogames. Every principle of design, color, lighting is discussed with clarity and supported by a huge amount of pictures. Beautiful and essential.
