I recently received this book as a gift and it's awesome. Surprisingly, not many people know about it around my studio. It's by a famous Disney production designer, Hans Bacher, and he's brilliant. He talks about everything from artsy paintings/designs to practical compositions to his life experience. All of things he wrote inside are fascinating and if you don't like to read, just look at the pictures. It definitely gives me that jolt of "inspiration" every time I open it. This book should be in every artist's bookshelf.
